The pop culture event was originally set to take place this April at the Cross Insurance Center but as we all know by now that venue is set up for vaccinations.

Geeks rejoice!  Bangor Comic & Toy Con will welcome back actors from the cult movie classic Clerks this year, as Jay Mewes, Brian O'Halloran, and Jeff Anderson, will all make appearances  to reminisce about the 1994 movie and sign autographs.  Judging by the comments left behind on the Bangor Comic & Toy Con Facebook page, fans are very excited about the actor's now scheduled appearance, with one commentator screaming out, well, "Eeeeeeeek!! I'm screaming!!!!"

Fans will now have to wait a few extra months though, as the event has been kicked ahead and will now run between October 1st and 3rd of this year.  Bangor Comic & Toy Con events, displays, demonstrations, for sale tables and appearances will apparently take up an entire wing of the Bangor Mall.

While some fans of the event may find this novel, others find it as putting the Mall's space to very good use, as recent events like huge craft fairs have brought thousands to the venue and have filled the parking lot.

Tickets to this October's event will go on sale next week at
