Bang Pop: Year Two 

Comic book and pop culture fans spent the weekend at the Bangor Civic Center.It was the second annual Bang Pop! convention.Bang Pop! offers everything from panel discussions to movie screenings, plus meet and greets with professional artists and authors.The “artist alley” showcases work by creators from Maine, as well as the rest of New England and the Canadian Maritimes.Folks who turned out to show off their work say it’s been a great way to get more exposure. “As a creator, I do most of my work at home, sitting at my desk,” Said comics creator Raina Telgemier. “So it’s great to come out and get to meet people who’ve read the books, or haven’t read the books…and convince them why they should read it.”Bang Pop! wrapped up Sunday afternoon at five.
