What makes this strip great is the details–the bars on the window and the drizzling… thing in panel 2, the armband and bizarre steampunk clock-like object in panel 6, etc.
Can someone explain this cartoon? “Great details”, but… what the heck is going on in the last three panels? Is it intended to be a random sequencing of cute drawings? Seriously, this requires explanation!
You have to let go of such mundane preoccupations. :)
Okay, I admit to being mundane.
My comment got posted before I was finished. My next line is: what does it all mean? I have been forever mystified by Bezonki, and at one point Mary Morgan threatedned me with a Bezonki calendar. I guess I am totally out of it!
The Detroit Free Press once had an ad for itself with a cartoon by Richard Guindon. The footline on the ad was “We don’t get it either.”
I really liked and understood the obscure homor of cartoonists like Richard Guindon and Ben Katchor, but Bezonki goes right over my head.
Yikes, my name got messed up in the previous!
Kester.enbaum has a good ring to it.
I think Bezonki gallantly exemplifies Ann Arbor’s tolerance for cross-species dating.
I think each panel is actually from a different story.
That’s an interesting idea. Let’s put a bunch of strips side by side and read across. But actually, I was totally following this story right up to the cart with the heads, which was a total lurch into dream logic.
Bringing home the bacon? It’s a love story. You need to go back to the Feb 1 strip, where they meet for the first time.
