The two shows are on either side of a single flip-cover issue. The TVD cover features Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and Stefan (Paul Wesley) — or is that Silas? — while The Originals’ has Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis).
Pairing with Warner Bros. for the collector’s editions of TVD, Supernatural, Arrow, Superman, and Batman covers, the TV Guide issues will be available for free at the WB’s Comic-Con booth.
If you are lucky enough to be headed to Comic-Con next week, be sure to check out The Originals panel on Saturday at 1 p.m. to see Joseph Morgan, Claire Holt (Rebekah), Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley), Charles Michael Davis, and executive producer Julie Plec. Later that day, at 4:30, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes), Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett), Julie Plec, and Caroline Dries will be on hand for the TVD panel.
For those of us not headed to Comic-Con, we’ll just have to stare longingly at the covers until the issues hit stands on July 17. It’s almost the same thing, right?
