Strange Adventures #211

Strange Adventures #211 (On Sale: February 29, 1968) has a nice dramatic cover by Neal Adams.

"How Close to Me My Killer?" is by Jack Miller and Neal Adams. Deadman follows the trail of the Hook to Mexico. He is surprised to find his twin brother, Cleveland Brand, living in Mexico. He begins to suspect that Cleveland was involved in his murder, but instead discovers that Cleve is really part of an immigrant smuggling operation. When Cleveland is ordered to kill the workers to prevent them from being discovered by police, he refuses. Deadman then helps his brother stop the other smugglers. This story has been reprinted in Deadman #4.

The back-up story featuring the Space Museum is "Earth Victory -- by a Hair." It is a reprint from Strange Adventures #124 and is by Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino.

Edited by Jack Miller.
