Captain Alcohol

In 1973 the government of the North West Territories decided that it needed to battle alcoholism among native groups, so it commissioned Captain Alcohol comics.

Captain Al comes from the planet Barkelda, almost a utopia except that the Barkelda civilization never learned to control the use of alcohol. Read the entire first issue here

Produced by Arctic Comics for the Department of Information for the Department of Social Development, Government of the Northwest Territories, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. With story/design/artwork by Art Sorensen, Phil Clark and Dale Austin.

    I've been trying to work "the two words no one likes to hear" into conversation. Doesn't have to be "S-she's d-dead!" Might be "R-Republican d-debate" or "F-fat f-free."
