In our very brief rundown of the fall’s busy convention slate, we forgot one: Bangor’s BangPop, which presents cartoon-types from Maine and New England, as well as Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman, from away.
The Bangor Daily Newshas a chipper preview of the show:
Event founder and organizer Gibran Graham capitalized on the success of last year’s inaugural BangPop by doing the exact same thing — only bigger and better, starting with expanding the convention to two days instead of one.
“The first thing I learned from last year was that anything I was worried about, I shouldn’t have worried about. Everyone there was just so overjoyed to have something like this here,” said Graham, the organizational spark behind the SnowCon Gaming Convention and the Lebowski Bowl-a-rama. “We just want more of it all. More films, more guests, more kids’ stuff, more everything.”
