Rahan – French Prehistoric Comic Book Hero

Rahan was a prehistoric lone-warrior who wandered the earth on a journey of self-discovery and to help others. He made his first appearance in 1969 in the French comic book Pif Gadget then went on to feature in his own albums. Such was the character’s popularity in France that an action figure was licensed by Group Action Joe, the French version of G.I. Joe / Action Man. Pif Gadget gave away a number of Rahan toys as ‘gadgets’ in some of their issues. Rahan was also adapted into two animated TV series (1986 and 2006).
