Bantan. Bantan was created by Maurice Gardner and appeared in twelve novels and story collections from 1936 to 1977, beginning with Bantan, God-Like Islander.

Bantan is a South Seas Adventurer. The orphaned three-year-old Arthur Delcourt is washed ashore on the South Seas island of Beneiro. He is found by the native chief and raised by him, but educated by the local French missionary, Father Lasance. When Delcourt, now called “Bantan” by the natives, reaches his majority he begins traveling around the South Pacific and encountering Lost Races, dinosaurs, Amazons, and weird SCIENCE!.
