Pre-1930s Marlinspike Hall
Marlinspike Hall (French: Le château de Moulinsart [mu.lɛ̃.saʁ]) is Captain Haddock's country house and family estate in The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé.The original French name of the hall, Moulinsart, is derived from Sart-Moulin, a village near Braine-l'Alleud in Walloon Brabant, Belgium. In an allusion to the Haddock family's maritime history, the hall's English name refers to the marlinspike, a tool used in seamanship to splice ropes. The Belgian corporation managing Hergé's work (principally Tintin) is also called Moulinsart S.A. Pluto Saves the Ship
"Pluto Saves the Ship" is a comic book story scripted by writers Carl Barks, Jack Hannah and Nick George from a plot devised possibly by a publisher, and drawn by an unidentified illustrator. It was originally printed in Large Feature Comics #7 in 1942, and is one of the first American Disney comics ever made that was not reprinted from newspaper comic strips. It is also the first work in a comic book that Barks ever did. It is also Pluto's first solo comic book adventure.
It is also the only story that Barks did that took place in the Mickey Mouse Universe other than Mickey Mouse in "The Riddle of the Red Hat." Suicide Slum
Suicide Slum (official name Southside) is a notorious fictional slum in publications from DC Comics. The area was first introduced in the "Newsboy Legion" feature as a slum in New York City. It was later placed in Superman's city, Metropolis, when the Newsboy Legion was reintroduced. The Southside is also known as The Simon Project in the Post-Crisis continuity.
