Comic Book Ad from Count Dante

Comic Book Ad from Count Dante

When I was a young boy growing up in the 1970's I had two loves, my warrior martial arts training and comic books. I was doing some late night research the other day and came across a martial arts documentary about Count Dante the 'crown prince of death'.



I recognized this character from the comic book ads of my youth and thought it was an interesting tid-bit of American martial arts history.

So if you read a comic book from the late 60' to the mid 1970's then you have most likely seen the ad above. Heck some of you may have even sent your paper route or lawn mowing money into Count Dante.

Below is a three minute short martial art film created by Filmmaker Floyd Webb. This martial arts documentary is about the life of John Keehan, aka Count Dante.

He was a man who was not only a karate master and martial arts promoter who offered the secrets of Dim Mak Death Touch, but also a voodoo priest and one of the first martial arts instructors to teach African American's karate.

Floyd Webb not only remembers the comic book ads offered by Count Dante, he meet him as a boy.

In the years after the Count's death, Mr. Webb has become obsessed with revealing to the public that Count Dante was more than just a controversial martial arts legend, he was a man that helped shape martial arts in America and the world.

I hope this short martial arts film documentary brings back memories to those who grew up in this time period and opens up a bit of martial arts history to those who did not...Enjoy!

I met him when I was 11 years old. I was taught by someone else.
