From the June 25, 2014
issue of The Journal newspaper

By Richard Harris

   Like many youngsters Dante White is a fan of animated action shows on television. However, he doesn't just watch them, he draws inspiration from them.

   At the tender age of 7 he started doodling and drawing characters similar to those on shows like Pokemon, Ben 10, and Dragon Ball Z. Now, at 11-years-old, he is creating his very own comics.

   "I like reading comics and action books and watching shows like that on TV and I wanted to do my own," he said.

   His first action adventure comic book was "Star Storm." Now he has created around 30 characters who appear in two to three stories each.

   In addition to showing a flair for creativity, he has also shown a little entrepreneurial spirit. After showing some of his creations to fellow students and seeing their interest in them, he started selling them.

   "He said, 'Mom, I need to make some copies,' and then told me he was selling them at school," said Demetria "D" White (owner/operator of Annie D's Restaurant in Buena Vista).

   The young artist added, "I usually sell them for 50¢, but I've charged a little more for the longer books."

   However, readers of The Journal and visitors to the newspaper's website – www.tjournal.com – will have an opportunity to enjoy one of his comic books for free. The Journal and Annie D's Restaurant are sponsoring the publication of "Tensho Legends", which will be published as a series. The first installment is on Page 12 of this week's newspaper. (Or for those viewing this online, click here.)

   "It's an action adventure comic with a guy trying to restore the Tensho blade," said the young artist.
Dante is the son of Douglas White, Jr. and Demetria White.
