Description

A sparklingly funny celebration of Hergé’s most beloved character via his legendary exclamations! Captain Haddock made his first appearance alongside Tintin in 1941, and in the course of the 80 years that followed, has gone on to become one of Hergé best loved characters. Clumsy, accident-prone, frequently intoxicated and almost always enraged, the Captain is perhaps best known for his colourful exclamations. ‘Blistering barnacles’ and ‘thundering typhoons’ have passed effortlessly from the pages of Hergés comics into the public consciousness. This brand-new book explores in joyful detail the Captain’s legendary tirades – and is the perfect way to discover, or rediscover, this extraordinary character and his unforgettable adventures. The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm since they first found their way into publication, and more than 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th. Hergé (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907.

Over the course of 54 years he completed over 20 titles in The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time.
