Holan, Pavel. Pavel Holan was created by “J.M. Troska,” the pseudonym of the Czech author Jan Matzal (Arne Farin), and appeared in seven serials and novels from 1936 to 1942, beginning with Vládce Mořských Hlubin (1936-1937). Pavel Holan is a Czech scientist who invents the superstrong wonder element Holanit and uses it to construct a bathyscaphe with which to explore hitherto unreachable parts of the ocean floor. Later, he befriends Arne Farin, builds an advanced submarine, meets the very old Captain Nemo in his Antarctic base, and travels into space to fight the evil Saturnians.
