Happy Birthday, Neil Diamond Skywriters over L.A.: Happy Birthday Neil Diamond! The Comics Code Authority is dead. I expect kids to start jumping off roofs in capes, sticking needles in their eyes, and disrespecting authority any minute now. In related news, Wizard magazine, which attempted to be the Time of the comics industry, is also dead. My friend Bill Heisel continues his post-mortem on the autism/vaccine scare.
