It's Web Wednesday!

There is so much crazy going on in this that my brain cannot even parse it:

It would be artistically superior if Czechoslovakia were being defenestrated.
Okay, we have...

  • The Web, a human dressed in a spiderweb cape, wrestling
  • A spider with a very surprised Hitler head, in the air above
  • A bald, vaguely offensive "Oriental" stereotype with a swastika on his forehead and a diaper over his naughty bits who is apparently beheading
  • Everyone in France, if labels are to be believed. Meanwhile,
  • Norway is apparently being hung, four at a time (or there are only four people in Norway...which might well be true, as long as they are all in Black Metal bands), and
  • Czechslovakia is being gunned down by
  • The reader, a la Doom. Which still fails to account for the fact that Germany is being represented by
  • Gandhi leaning on a surfboard.
  • Oh, and there's also a torch.

The Web confuses me (and no doubt Hitler) in Zip Comics #27 (or possibly #28), as drawn by the mysterious John Cassone (of whom I can find no biographical info). Picture submitted by the mysterious Olaf, of whom I also know precious few details...
