From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain (2007), is the title of a science-fiction novel by Minister Faust. The novel is essentially a fictional self-help book for superheroes written by the character Dr. Eva Brain-Silverman a.k.a. Dr. Brain, the world's leading therapist for the extraordinary abled, titled Unmasked! When Being A Superhero Can't Save You From Yourself: Self-Help Guide for Today's Hyper Hominids. The novel follows the adventures and therapy sessions of the members the Fantastic Order of Justice, Earth's most powerful, and dysfunctional, superteam.

Some reviewers[citation needed] have noted that many of the characters are parodies of characters from "mainstream" comic book publishers such as DC Comics and Marvel Comics and from the famous graphic novel Watchmen, itself a comic book deconstruction.
