THE COMIC BOOK SERIES

CHAPTER 1

JOHN TIMOTHY KEEHAN

You might remember those iconic comic book ads of the 1970s, but do you know the story behind them? 
John Timothy Keehan returned home to Chicago, a Vietnam War veteran ready to make a name for himself in martial arts. But what he found was a hard town, run by the Outfit. So Keehan and his old war buddy, Sidney Brown, set forth on a plan that would turn the nice Irish boy from Beverly, Chicago, into the most vicious, hairdressing, car-selling, cape-wearing karate master to ever live.

This is the true story of Count Juan Raphael Dante. 
Well, sort of...I mean...liberties were taken.
