••• French artist Pierre-Marie Lenoir has taken Dragon Ball Z characters and fused them with superheroes like Batman, Spider-Man, and Wolverine. See more of his work here.
••• No doubt inspired by transatlantic success of Straight Outta Compton, Marvel’s latest variant covers gimmick is classic hip hop album cover homages. Apparently comic shops in the US are going gaga over them with huge pre-orders forcing Marvel to reprints.

••• Just added to the Dr Marten’s Adventure Time range are these Marceline the Vampire Queen boots, which as well as the toe cap detailing have fluffy tongues too! Available here.

••• Sesame Street does a spoof of the most famous scene from When Harry Met Sally. We have no idea why.
••• Have you ever heard that theory about Star Wars – the one that suggest with a different emphasis the Empire could be portrayed as the good guys fighting against evil terrorists?Seems that you can do a similar “sexing up” with Joffrey in Game Of Thrones.
••• Spider-Man elect used Instagram to show off his first ever Spider-Man costume.
••• Aston Martin has unveiled a special Bond edition DB9 sports car to coincide with the release of SPECTRE. Only 150 examples of the car, based on the DB9 GT, will be offered for sale, at $250,000. Thank God Top Gear is off the air at the moment and Clarkson’s new show is months off.
••• A deleted scene from last year’s Doctor Who… well, sort of.
