Russian Novel Mixes Phantasm II with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

From the mega-weird section of the Phantasm Archives comes: Turtles-Ninjas Against the Long Old Man, His Assistant Dwarfs and Shiny Balls, a 1995 Russian novel that mashes together Phantasm II and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You can see images of the book's interior below.

While this crossover is clearly taking inspiration from Phantasm II, its "Long Old Man" looks far more like the Train Man from Matrix Reloaded than Angus Scrimm's Tall Man. The book's translated description reads: "On the film "Phantasm II". Turtles together with April come to a small town in the Himalayas, where something strange happens. Here settled a mad old scientist who invented the elixir of life. With his help, he revives the dead and turns them into his army of invincible zombies." Eager to own this bizarre item? You're in luck - the book is currently up for auction on eBay!
