This Stephen King comic tells a story about art, life and desks — with a great Bangor shoutout

Web comic ZenPencils, created by artist Gavin Aung Than, has been taking quotes from fascinating people and bringing them to life with colorful multi-panel comics for the past five years. For this week’s comic, he chose a quote from Stephen King, relaying a short but sweet story about his succession of writing desks, spanning many decades of his career. There are many nice visual mentions of Maine things — from the iconic Bangor house, to the Bangor Daily News itself. Thanks, Gavin!
