The Crab with the Golden Claws

The Crab with the Golden Claws - Hergé Hurray for Haddock!!The Captain finally makes his drunken appearance in a liver-bursting whirlwind of whisky-quaffing, profanity, loutishness, maudlin self-pity and violent assault! The perfect foil for Tintin's often beige-bland earnestness.While certainly played for laughs, Captain Haddock's alcoholism is also clearly shown as being a bad thing - he frequently endangers Tintin's life and several times almost scuppers the investigation - and so we can take a moral lesson from that.Other reviewers have said what happens, so I won't bother. Suffice to say it's really rather good. To be precise, very good.
