So, my cartoon is on Miguel Primo de Rivera... but you can never learn too much about a topic, right?

- Yes, Dad. Every day we read a beautiful master page; previously selections.

- What now?

- Now is the Gazette.

Origin: The Guardian, 10.10.1923

Purpose: This cartoon followed the coup of Primo de Rivera. The cartoon is referring to the Board ruling by military decree. The student is referring to how many new laws and decrees that will be published in the official gazette now.

Value: The author of the cartoon is criticizing the Boards ability to rule by military. 

Limitations: The limitations of the cartoon is that it is unclear which group exactly is criticizing their ability. I'm sure this is not the universal thought on the matter and it is unclear who exactly shares this criticism.
