Crossover Cover: Big Trouble in Mother Russia


The potion that Egg Shen gave to Jack Burton and friends to make them feel invincible is revealed to have been invented by a Gaelic Druid in Roman times and is kept in a gourd. Abdul Alhazred is mentioned, and Friedrich Wilhelm von Juntz’s Unaussprechlichen Kulten is seen. The potion is the same one the Druid Getafix gave to the title character of René Goscinny and Alberto Uderzo’s comic book The Adventures of Asterix to make him superhumanly strong. Abdul Alhazred is from H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos tales, while Friedrich Wilhelm von Juntz and his book Unaussprechlichen Kulten are from Robert E. Howard’s own Mythos stories. 

This novel is one of hundreds of crossovers covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, to be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
