Memo Pad: Three's a Crowd on "Today Show"... Garance Doré Shoots...

Apparently, Monday was Editor in Chief Day at the “Today” show.

COMIC TIMING: Superheroes come in all shapes and styles these days — even Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. The former model, singer, paramour of rockers and politicians and now First Lady of France is to be immortalized as the main heroine of a new comic book. It is part of Bluewater Productions’ “Female Force” biography series and is due out in August. Penned by “Doctor Who” novelist David A. McIntee and drawn by Heath Foley, the comic traces Bruni-Sarkozy’s rise from Nineties catwalker to first lady. And at the totally opposite end of the spectrum, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher also has been tackled by the series, as have Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and J.K. Rowling. The series is billed to offer a broad examination of strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture. — Katya Foreman
