Today in Comics History, August 1: Dreadful birthday, dear Joker!

According to the Super DC Calendar 1976, today's the birthday of the Clown of Crime: you know him, you love him, you're terrified out of your wits by him: The Joker!

from Super DC Calendar 1976 (DC, 1975), letters by Ben Osa

So, how'd that surprise party work out for ya, Mister Joker?

from Batman #321 (DC, March 1980), script by Len Wein, pencils by Walt Simonson, inks by Dick Giordano, colors by Glynis Oliver, letters by Ben Oda

By the way, Cesar Romero would like to assure you fine folks that his birthday is February 15. Not today.

(But also see December 6.)
