Quick bits and/or bobs

Over on AICN, Moriarty reviews - in best, BOGOF fashion, two of the summer's more eagerly-anticipated comic book adventures, "Hellboy 2 - The Golden Army" and "The Dark Knight".

Whilst over in the realms of gaming, this week's downloadable tracks for Rock Band skew towards Motley Crue, with three tracks from bands on their rolling festival jaunt, Crue Fest.

Far more exciting, for this avowed Eighties guitar geek, is the news that Guitar Hero 3's DLC for the July 4th US holiday is "Top Gun Anthem", from everybody's favourite slab of knuckleheaded US agitprop.  Click for more big-haired, squealy-squawky whammy bar abuse (with props to the good people at Kotaku).

After yesterday's reveal of the new "Quantum of Solace" trailer - every bit as bad ass as you might have hoped for - comes early dish on Activision's video game spin-off, which apparently uses Infinity Ward's "Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare" engine during the game's FPS moments.

In yer non-gaming blather, this is a fricking sweet shirt if every I saw one.

And for comics heads, here's a page from Warren Ellis' first issue of the post-Whedon "Astonishing X-Men".  Tree-based Wolverineism?  Nice...

Whereas the nice peeps at I09 drag us back to the present and bring the new comics as ever on a Tuesday - anybody standing in the way of my picking up the new "Buffy Season 8" on Thursday is gonna know about it, dig?

And, as ever, Uwe Boll FTW...
