Swipes File #11: Doctor, doctor, give me the news

The Comics Journal had an interesting feature called the “swipes file” where they showed two comics or cartoons by different creators with very similar formatting. In that spirit, I offer a series of mash-ups (or possibly swipes) on similar topics from some of my archival research.

Today, let’s look at a Canadian province and one of those United States on the operating table:

Saskatchewan taking their cutAnd, why not, the NIRA (National Industrial Recovery Act):

"The Sick Bird," 1835

“The Sick Bird,” 1935

Last but not least, a kind of crap copy showing the French Constitution on the Senate dissecting table by Honoré Daumier:

"Honore Daumier" in Editorial and Political Cartooning by Syd Hoff (page 45).

“The constitution on the disecting [sic] table” by Honore [my sic! can’t get the accent mark for some reason] Daumier in Editorial and Political Cartooning by Syd Hoff (p 45). Originally “The Anatomy Lesson” in La Caricature, 3 October 1833.
