Stories I Only Have In E-Mail Form

* Megan Kelso's Watergate Sue will start in the New York Times Magazine April 1 and run in installments on Sundays for about six months.

* According to an e-mail distributed by writer Cory Doctorow, the publisher IDW is going to adapt six of his stories into commercial comics -- Andas Game, I, Robot, After the Siege, When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth, Nimby and the D-Hoppers, Craphound. Where this become interesting, and I'm bound to trip over my typing fingers here, is that Doctorow and his agent worked out special contractual language in order to work with IDW in this matter, while having the stories retain their Creative Commons status in all other forms.

* Titan is licensing an 84-page Superman publication from DC to sell in the UK, Superman Legends, initially featuring recent Grant Morrison, Jim Lee and Jeph Loeb serials from different North American comic books.

* Jon Cooke writes in to say that the documentary on which he's been working with brother Andrew Cooke, Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist, has been invited to the Tribeca Film Festival to be entered into competition. This means, among other things, that the film will be completed sooner rather than later.
