What are some good sources to learn about Killing spinors from?

I am currently learning about Killing vectors and how they are the generators of a Lie algebra that corresponds to the isometry group of a manifold (i.e. the group consisting of the transformations that leave the metric of that manifold invariant).
So, the natural next step is to learn about Killing spinors and their relation to a similar kind of (super)algebra that corresponds to the analog of the isometry group mentioned above.
