Captain Jack first appeared in 1986 in the comic book The Adventures of Captain Jack published by Fantagraphics Books who say they are a "Publisher of Comic Books and Graphic Novels by the World's Greatest Cartoonists". However, I cannot find a reference to this comic book character nor the creator of the character on the Fantagraphics Books' website.
Captain Jack is a space adventurer of the 23rd century, specifically 2200. He commands a crew that includes a dog called Herman Feldman who has a side kick, a small dog with a red tail who is conveniently called Beezlebub, a play on the name, as you have no doubt guessed, of Beelzebub, meaning the devil. The crew also includes a terrier faced robot called Adam Fink.
In one adventure Captain Jack went to rescue Stanley Tomcat who had actually decided that he wanted to stay on a planet that he liked. In another space adventure Jack travels to a farming planet to help out with harvesting. The only occupants of the planet are raccoons: Fred and Janet.
