Join us for a special inaugural event for UNCAGED: HERO FOR HIGHER with John Jennings, Stacey Robinson, and Dr. Nalo Hopkinson (Department of Creative Writing, UC Riverside), which will be moderated by Rachelle Cruz (Department of Creative Writing, UC Riverside). 

The conversation among these comics creators and scholars will include their most recent comics-related projects: Jennings and Robinson's collaboration for their exhibition, UNCAGED: HERO FOR HIGHER, which remixes and analyzes the nuances of the Marvel Comics character, Luke Cage; Hopkinson's process for writing her new Sandman Universe comic, House of Whispers, which is influenced by African and Caribbean mythology; and Cruz's newly-released comics textbook, Experiencing Comics: An Introduction to Reading, Discussing and Creating Comics.
