    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.

    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.
