Can’t quite explain it. Maybe “borscht” and “dollop” in a single panel. Loved Zip for years, since I saw a page of art on display in a show 25+ years ago, I reckon (from his pre-strip comix existence), part of a story that had all the logic of a too-vivid dream. Loved it, loved it, loved it! And the strip is one of the smartest ones out there.
