Deep Thoughts: Rick Baker introduces us to The Joker

Legendary make up artist Rick Baker best know for his work on movies such as American Werewolf in London, Harry and the Hendersons, Tropic Thunder and many many more films has recently decided to play with a little pet project by recreating The Joker from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman story, “Death of the Family.”

“Death of the Family” was a 23-issue comic book story arc first published by DC Comics in 2012 featuring the fictional superhero Batman and his family of supporting characters. The arc spans several titles featuring characters of the Batman family including: Batman, Batgirl, Batman and Robin, Catwoman, Detective Comics, Nightwing,Red Hood and the Outlaws, Suicide Squad, and Teen Titans. The story involves the return of Batman’s arch-enemy, the Joker, and his plan to destroy all of the people Batman has come to rely on over the years: the multiple Robins, Batgirl, Catwoman, Alfred Pennyworth and Commissioner James Gordon. The title is a reference to the classic Batman story arc “A Death in the Family” (1988), in which the Joker murders Jason Todd.
