ComicsAlliance Celebrates Captian Haddocktober!

While other sites may be content to bring you Rocktober, Shocktober or Mohawktober, ComicsAlliance is committed to commemorating the things that really matter! That’s why this month, we’re bringing you 31 days of Tintin’s nautical pal as we celebrate Captain Haddocktober!DID YOU KNOW…

  • Hergé did not reveal Captain Haddock’s first name, Archibald, until his last completed story in 1976. Presumably, future plans would have included the introduction of his two rival girlfriends, Betty and Veronica.
  • While Tintin is renowned for his quick wits and fearless attitude towards danger, Captain Haddock is more well-known for his apoplectic rages and alcoholism. Hilarious!
  • Haddock is also known for his creative use of insults, referring to his enemies as “iconoclasts,” “savages,” and “jobbers.” Which, now that I think of it, makes him the Belgian equivalent of the Rock.

Join us tomorrow for more Captain Haddocktober celebrations!
