Owen McCarron (1929, Halifax, Nova Scotia – June 27, 2005) was a Canadian cartoonist and publisher.

As a publisher, he was a prolific packager of promotional comic books. He also produced work for American comic book publishers, including Charlton Comics, DC Comics and Marvel.

Career

For thirty-two years McCarron worked for the Hallifax Herald Limited, publishers of The Chronicle-Herald and The Mail Star, which are distributed throughout the province of Nova Scotia.
