Synopsis for "A Visit from the Dead"

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • This book was first published on September 5, 1968.
  • Though originally published during DC's Earth-One era of publication, the events from this series are largely preserved in Post-Crisis continuity, though some element may have been altered.


  • While sales of the title were modest, Brother Power was not popular among the staff. DC Comics artist Carmine Infantino claimed in several interviews following his retirement from comics that Superman editor Mort Weisinger disliked the character very strongly, and petitioned DC publisher Jack Liebowitz to shut down the title. According to Infantino and others who knew and worked with Mort, Weisinger harbored an admitted dislike for the hippie subculture of the 60's, and felt that Simon portrayed them too sympathetically. It didn't help that Mad Dawg and his cronies appeared with uniforms and gadgetry evocative of Nazis in the second issue. According to Joe Simon, the third issue was canceled just before the finished artwork was to be set up for print duplication, and to this day Simon refuses to discuss exactly what the plot of this issue was about, nor release any of the original art.
