Halfway between Peanuts and Seinfeld, J+K tells the adventures of two orphan little girls in a shopping mall. Winning book project at first Puchi Award, J+K, by John Pham (Saigón, 1974), is a comic book in whose development many binding and risograph techniques are a key aspect, enhanced with many extra contents and endless in its simplicity, J+K is also an art object itself that celebrates pop culture and its physical expressions —magazines, vinyl, videogames. Born by the conjunction of contemporary anxiety and a society too focused in consumerism, J+K celebrates values as friendship and leads to empathy, laughter and existential reflection, not renouncing to joy and lightness.
