Superhero fans flying into northeast Ohio city

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — Comic book and superhero fans are descending on northeast Ohio this weekend.

Organizers of Super Hero Weekend in the city of Elyria (eh-LEER'-ee-uh) are hoping to turn the event in annual attraction.

It's the second year for the event.

This year's three-day festival featured a discussion with a writer for Marvel Comics. A free comic book giveaway is slated for Saturday.

Organizers tell The Chronicle-Telegram newspaper (http://bit.ly/11ZzFl4 ) in Elyria that they're trying to reach new customers and promote independent comic book retailers.

Other activities include free caricatures and trivia contests.
