The Joke: The punchline

July 24, 2012 | 12:57 p.m.

With "The Killing Joke" (1986), Alan Moore and Brian Bolland elevate the Joker's Red Hood origin by embroidering it with the story of a sad sack stand-up comic who tumbles into a life of crime and madness. It's the rare story, too, that presents the clown in moments that invite some reader empathy. (DC Comics)
