I ran typescript zsh.log, then ran zsh inside, control-Led, hit return a
few times, and cat-ed a ReGIS image file.  I can confirm that what you
state happens: the image is cleared from the following line to the end of
the screen.

This appears to be due to zsh emitting a ^[[J before printing the prompt.
I don't know why it does this.  Does zsh sometimes write to parts of the
screen below the current line?

[many lines omitted]
^M^M^[[0m^[[27m^[[24m^[[Jusername@hostname ~% ^[[K^[[?2004h^[[?2004l^M^M
^[[?2004h^[[38;5;101musername@hostname:~$ ^[[m^M
^[[?2004l^[[?2004h^[[38;5;101musername@hostname:~$ ^[[m^[[?2004l
[other lines omitted]

I don't have that in my prompt either:
username@hostname ~% set | grep PROMPT
PROMPT='%n@%2m %~%# '
