Image of JIN & JAM No. 1 (2nd Printing)

$3.00

This is the second printing of Jin & Jam #1, which boasts a slightly different cover, pink pages, smaller size, and smaller price! Originally published by Sparkplug Comics in 2008, this zine version was self-published in 2012.

Issue #1 follows bored California teens, Jin and Jam, who meet, become friends, battle cops and conjoined twins, and make stupid teenaged observations about life.

Some reviews:

from http://blogs.villagevoice.com/

"Hellen Jo mixes manga motifs with an old-fashioned underground sensibility and arrives at something bruisingly new. Tinges of Korean folk art and breathtaking shifts in perspective suggest a state somewhere between profane reality and an idyllic adolescent dreamstate. Can't wait for more."

from http://inkstuds.com/

"The panels explode with the surreality of teenagedom, where every sound, smell and moment is amplified to an excruciating degree."

"This is one of the best comics I've seen in a while... Everything in this book is drawn with loving care..."

from http://blog.oregonlive.com/

"...the characters are morons..."
