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

Organizers of Super Hero Weekend in the city of Elyria 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 in Elyria that they’re trying to reach new customers and promote independent comic book retailers.

Other activities include free caricatures and trivia contests.
