Local comic-book creators Mike McCubbins and Matt Bryan have been friends for fifteen years and have many joint projects to show for their professional relationship. In addition to their comics anthology, Mixed Feelings (now in its fifth issue), are hours of animation, several albums from their musical endeavors and now their dazzling new hardcover graphic novel, Book of Da. Book of Da is a beautifully drawn and subtly written fable of an omniscient sea creature who controls the emotions of the briny deep and the stubborn deep-sea diver who defies that power. At 7 p.m. tonight, McCubbins and Bryan discuss Book of Da at the Schlafly branch of the St. Louis Public Library (225 North Euclid Avenue; 314-367-4120 or www.slpl.org) and explain how the book was made.
