Humor Cartoons

Syndicated humor cartoons were also a popular inclusion in The Catholic Standard and Times and other diocesan newspapers. These cartoons often relied on the reader having an understanding of Catholicism in order to understand the joke. The comics began to regularly appear in The Catholic Standard and Times by the end of the 1960s, and remained a staple through the early 2000s.
