Monica Zurowski scoured The Calgary Herald archives for Father’s Day comic strips.

This Sunday is a time for dads — it’s Father’s Day, which happens on the third Sunday of June each year in dozens of countries around the world. It’s not a stat holiday, but it is a day that many people mark by thanking fathers for all that they do. It’s also a day that has long given rise to cartoons and comics marking the occasion. Here’s a look at some of the Father’s Day funnies that have been published in the Calgary Herald over the years.

From 1942 to today’s Greg Perry cartoon The Calgary Herald presents Father’s Day comics though the years.

Everywhere around the world…

The creatively illustrated comic strips emphasize the unwavering desire of fathers to ensure the best for their children and showcase how fatherly advice has evolved over time yet remains rooted in the constant desire for their children’s well-being and success. The campaign invites learners to share personal stories and anecdotes capturing the profound values passed through generations.
