Jin is the teenaged misfit who wants nothing more than to get the hell out of South San Jose. Jam is the teenaged ne’er- do- well who never plans to leave. In this first issue of “Jin & Jam”, these two unlikely companions meet and forge a friendship stronger than… nicotine addiction.
“This really is a good comic. You feel the heft of it once you pick it up. I dig the first/ last page color on the interior pages, which reminds me of some imported manga. The basic story is about Jin and Jam, two young girls living in the otherworldly scene of San Jose? I’m guessing it’s San Jose, since the cop has a SJPD helmet at one point. The “normalcy” of their world is offset by fights with a conjoined twin and mirages of fishes. I’m sure there’s meanings and messages in some of these pages, but honestly, I love the ink. Hellen can draw like nobody’s biz. If you have a love of ink, you should do yourself a favor and search this comic out.” — Chris Pitzer, AdHouse blog
