Chris Reilly Shakes Hands with Himself (and Jughead #200)

Posted by on March 24th, 2010 at 2:26 PM

Over at the Guttergeek wing, we welcome a new contributor this week, Chris Reilly. We have gushed about his Igor: Fixed by Frankensteins, we have let him interview himself about his Strange Eggs Jumps the Shark. The next step, naturally, was to bring him on board the guttergeek express. To protect ourselves from future litigation, our lawyers have advised him to let him come up with a title for his own column, so that everyone will know whom to blame when things go horribly wrong. Naturally, Chris picked "Chris Reilly Shakes Hands with Himself," and whether you interpret that title as delicious hubris or as just plain nasty we suspect you're as excited as we are to see what comes out of the exchange.

Fer starters: Chris reviews Jughead #200, arguably the greatest Jughead comic ever (in the history of Jughead comics). Also, as he says, a damn good comic, period.
