Warner Bros + Free Bags + Comic-Con 2010 = Riot

Creative fashions fans made using the Warner Bros. bags

io9 asked an interesting question about the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con International 2010: Could there be a "nerd" riot? They said no. But, what if fans hear about free giveaways in limited quantities featuring their favorite geeky television shows?

Let's do the math: Attendance usually tops 120,000. There will be 125,000 giveaway bags. This sounds good until you realize that there are 11 different bags to collect. While not everyone will be shanking one other for a "Scooby-Doo" bag, there might be a scramble for the sexy totes with Maggie Q (Nikita) and Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory).

You may want to bring a can of mace.
