Larocque, Jean. Jean Larocque was created by the Canadian author Duc D'Orient and appeared in Jean Larocque de la Gendarmerie Royale, les Exploits de la Police Montee #1-44 (1943-1945).

Jean Larocque is a heroic and brave member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He is also a Québécois, which was unusual in a fictional Mountie of the 1940s. His adventures take him across Canada but are usually centered in Québéc. He fights Inuit witches, Soviet spies, American dope pushers, The Band of the Hippopotamus, atavistic dinosaurs, and half-Native Femmes Fatale. He appears in stories with titles like “The Assassin of the Arctic,” “The Spies of Labrador,” and “Mother Morphine.”
