Trivia

Cancelled port

Ron Risley's PAL port from the NTSC NES version was complete, but never marketed.

Development

After Scott Miller saw Captain Comic, he tried hard to recruit the author, Michael Denio, but Michael didn't have faith that shareware games could make money, and so he stayed at his normal job.

Music

For the NES port, the programmers chose classical music from the public domain so that they would not have to pay royalties to other music companies.

Names

The planet "Omsoc" where the treasures are stolen from is really "Cosmo" spelled backwards. Michael Denio used this trick for naming several things in the series.

Theme song

The theme song for Captain Comic was traditionally a rendition of the United States' Marine Corps Theme.
