Captain Haddock

About the article titled “Captain Haddock is the Age Readers Tell Him” ​​(“24 Hours” January 9, 2021).

In his excellent interview with Albert Algoud, Philippe Muri asks himself the question aside, whether Hergé was inspired by a real character to create his thunderous captain. To this end, he cites several sources of information, each as reliable as it is interesting. To this register, one could obviously add another incredible captain created by Rudolph Dirks, which appeared in the first album of Pim-Pam-Poum, published in 1897.
