From the Comic-Con International 2002 Events Guide

"Comics in the Classroom: The Secret Origin of Good Readers—Learn how teachers, comic book store owners, and comic book publishers can work together to expose students to a wonderful resource that will appeal to visual learners, and develop reading and writing skills. Learn how you can work with schools in your area to increase awareness of comics. Presented by Robyn A. Hill, a doctoral candidate at the University of Utah, Mimi Cruz, manager of Night Flight Comics in Salt Lake City, and Mike Carlin, VP Executive Editor of DC Comics, this panel is a must-attend event that will help you look at comics in an entirely different light. This special program is open to all attendees of Comic-Con, Comic Book Expo, and Pro-Con."

A message from Robyn A. Hill

On behalf of my co-presenters, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of THE SECRET ORIGIN OF GOOD READERS panel at the 2002 Comic-Con International: San Diego. This year's attendees received a print copy of the updated companion text, "THE SECRET ORIGIN OF GOOD READERS: A Resource Book" (courtesy of Comic-Con International), as well as free comics, including Supernatural Law #31 (compliments of Exhibit A Press), Justice League Adventures (thanks to DC Comics), and Rising Stars ½ (courtesy of Top Cow). Due to numerous requests for additional copies of the resource book from teachers and comics retailers, Night Flight Comics, with the support of Aros Net, has generously provided space on the store website so that I am able to offer the book in PDF format online free of charge. That way, anyone who needs a copy need only download and print one. I only ask two favors:

  • 1. Please read and respect the "terms of use" for the book listed below.

  • 2. Please let me know what you think. I am always looking for ways to upgrade and expand "The Secret Origin of Good Readers" and would really appreciate your ideas and suggestions. My contact information is on the last page of the book, or you can write to me care of this website: Robyn A. Hill
