On Sunday in Downtown Riverside, the UC Riverside Culver Center of the Arts will be hosting its first-ever Mini Comic Fest.

The event will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and have three different panels, including one on Women of Color in Comics. "It's important to see these types of representations because a lot of times we're looking at the characters and that was creating them, and there's been Women in Comics," said UC Riverside Professor John Jennings.

Additionally, there will be a panel on the business of comics, as well as one on two art exhibitions currently being featured. Tickets for the comic fest will be $15 for general admission and can be found on the UCR ARTS website.
