Hagar the Horrible

Hagar the Horrible is a short comic strip about a large-eared, big-nosed, knuckle-headed, walrus-mustachioed, pirate who is a well-meaning, but incredibly clumsy and accident-prone, troublemaker. The various pieces of the comic usually feature the well-intentioned Hagar saying or doing something foolish, often in pursuit of well-meaning but often-counterproductive, misguided, or downright insane personal goals, tragedies, or both.

Hägar the Horrible is the title and main character of an American comic strip created by cartoonist Dik Browne and syndicated by King Features Syndicate. It first appeared in February 1973 and was an immediate success.

The Best of Hägar the Horrible » We Are Cult

Newspaper comic strips occupy a strange place in American popular culture. Appearing on a daily schedule in a medium generally thought to be sharp decline, they walk a line between ubiquitous and easy to ignore. Even soap operas can’t match their frequency, and like soap-operas, they’re an art-form where the creator is rarely considered outside of a handful of icons like Garry Trudeau and Alex Raymond. Hägar the Horrible, created by cartoonist Dik Browne and currently produced by his son Chris, is obviously a very different creation than Doonesbury or Flash Gordon but still exemplifies the virtues of the comic-strip.
