Vampire Diaries: Ian Somerhalder introduces WB Comic-Con bags

Posted on

For Vampire Diaries fans, this year’s trip to Comic-Con is going to be filled with a new type of swag. For the seventh year, Warner Bros. has teamed up with SDCC to release the convention’s line of official bags. But unlike previous bags, this year’s come with an interactive, augmented reality experience.

Somerhalder will then join his fellow Vampire Diaries cast on stage on Saturday, for a panel hosted by Entertainment Weekly.
