COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Lovers of comics and graphic novels have a day to learn how to use these literary forms as part of their teaching techniques.

Friday's symposium is scheduled to be held at the Thomas Cooper Library on the University of South Carolina campus.

The event's theme is "Comics Studies in the South." It's free and open to the public.

Guest presenters include writer Roy Thomas, a former Marvel editor-in-chief, and Jeremy Love of the DC series, "Bayou."

Other presentations focus on Southern superheroes, black editorial cartoons from the Civil Rights era and popular comics set in the South.
