The Blade sends Herbo Gooli to Jasoom to cover Comic-Con
Fans of the Jasoomian documentary ‘John Carter’ have begun recruiting new members to their ranks at a gathering this weekend called a “Comic-Con.”
Their numbers are swelling in a disturbing trend that some military analysts say could be an indication that Jasoom actually intends to invade our planet.
Or, they could really just want a sequel to what many film critics here on our planet say was an entertaining look at the life and times of the War Lord of Barsoom.
John Carter, of course, is originally from Jasoom — or ‘Earth,’ as the inhabitants call their world.
The prince of Helium has not commented publicly on the film. But his best friend, Tars Tarkas, Jeddak of Thark, has reportedly become totally immersed in the celebrity status he has gained since its release.
Tars Tarkas has attended several wild Hollywood parties on Earth, and is rumored to have had flings with several starlets. He was briefly detained by police, but not charged, after an incident involving Charlie Sheen and a wild calot aboard a 747 jet — a Jasoomian type of flier.
Tars Tarkas has lent his likeness to recruitment posters for the sequel campaign that is growing by the day.
