What we're reading this week...

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

The superstorm known as Sandy has dominated media this week, but here are some of the other stories catching our eye:

Han Solo and Mickey Mouse together at last – News broke on Tuesday that Disney had agreed to acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion, thus giving it control of the “Star Wars” franchise. Social media users took the opportunity to bring some iconic characters together virtually.

Sorkin joins the much maligned Twitter – Aaron Sorkin, notorious Twitter hater, has finally joined the social media platform and sent out two tweets. So far both tweets have been “West Wing” themed – we hope his next tweet will be about his HBO show Newsroom, or maybe he’ll get into a Twitter feud with @WillMcAvoyACN

HBO Doc on photojournalists in the line of fire – The series will follow photojournalists as they risk their lives in Libya, Mexico, Brazil and South Sudan. The first in this four part series from writer-director Michael Mann will focus on Eros Hoagland in Juarez, Mexico – it airs Monday.

The Atlantic introduces “The Sexes” – This newest endeavor will cover issues like parenting, work place dynamics and how gender intersects with the economy. The magazine has published a number of gender-centric articles in the past year or so that gained a lot of attention and although they describe it as a “non-ladyblog,” the focus will be on gender.
