When I first started reading comics in the middle seventies
one of the most interesting characters in the books I bought
wasn't a superhero. It was the guy in this ad, Count Dante'.
The self proclaimed "Deadliest Man Alive" and his
Black Dragon Fighting Society always fascinated me.
I don't know if he was a real guy. I assume he wasn't.
For me there was a certain mystique to this cheesy ad
that's still there to this day.
Below is my version of the deadly Count.....BOOOOYAAAH!!!!
Thanks for looking!
After posting this yesterday, I came across THIS WEBSITE.
A man named Floyd Webb is making a documentary about Count Dante' (who apparently WAS a real guy).
If you're interested check it out, it's fascinating stuff!
