We have been nominated for the Wonderful Team Readership Award. Extremis needs no awards but we appreciate the sentiment. Sourcerer is a faithful Extremite and we thank him for his nomination. We run this blog inspired by enthusiasm about our topics. No awards really are needed just feedback and good discussion. We thank him and hope you’ll go check out his blog and the folks he’s nominated. Until next time, Extremites, I remain: Julian Munds.
Part Time Monster has nominated me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. She’s passing it along from Half-Eaten Mind, who bestowed it upon her in April. This one is not very difficult since it just requires a few links and I have upward of 60 of you guys bookmarked 😉 So I’m spreading the love today.
If you just don’t do awards, no worries. The title suggests it’s just a way of saying “thanks for reading,” anyway. That’s exactly what I’m doing here. Regular visitors who read, like, and comment are what makes blogging worthwhile for me. If not for all of you, I wouldn’t see much point in it.
If you do enjoy passing on awards, here are the rules–
- The nominee shall display the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award logo on his/her blog.
- The nominee shall nominate 14 bloggers s/he admires, over a period of 7 days, all at once or…

Hey, Extremites, you’ve probably noticed a drop off in posts recently.
There’s a few reasons for this. I have been busy with my non-blog life, doing some new contracts around Canada and I am gearing up for a big move to the UK, aside from some health difficulties in the last month.
Anyway, all this means that Extremis needs some new writers. If you are interested in joining our roster, note our mandate is write literate articles about fan related topics.
If interested in joining send me a 500 word article about what you’d like to write for us and we’ll go from there.
Send it to, email@example.com in word, PDF or pages format.
My best, Extremites,
Julian Munds – Editor-in-Chief for the Extremis Review.
The Extremis Review welcomes PoiSonPaiNter as a monthly contributor. Take a look at her interests and what she can bring to Extremis.
PoiSonPaiNter tries to work her creativity into written words through blogging about random stuff (including movie/book and concert/festival reviews) on her own Blog or through writing stories like the book she’s co-writing (More information here).
Her early interest in Fairy Tales turned into a fascination for Myths and Legends of all kinds, but also a liking for everything Fantasy-related. A similar path was taken from (Disney) Cartoons and Anime to (Web) Comics and other nerdy things: X-Men, Spiderman, Buffy, and Doctor Who. You name it and Poison has either looked into it or has it already on her list. Oddly enough, while bats are amongst her favourite animals, she doesn’t like Batman; or DC characters. She is more of a Marvel-person.
Poison considers herself to be a Metalhead and therefore belongs to a different kind of Dark Side (without former knowledge of the involved cookies, but ever grateful when they are served), but regardless of all the above still certified to ask: “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”
The Extremis Review is proud to welcome Logan Judy to our list of writers. Logan will be joining us as our Batman and Star Wars Contributor. He may also be writing on other DC related topics. Ask him what he wants to say! Here’s what he says about himself.
“There’s not a time I can remember not being into something that would be considered nerdy. I inherited many of my older brother’s Batman action figures at a very young age, and eagerly watched cartoons based on characters like Batman, Spider-Man, the Ninja Turtles, and Sonic the Hedgehog. I played out the Star Wars movies with my friends and even read books from the expanded universe. When I was ten years old, my family took a vacation to Florida and went to Universal Studios. It was there that I got my first comic books. They were the only ones I had for a long time, since there wasn’t a comic shop anywhere around my home, but I loved them dearly. Since going to college I have greatly expanded my collection, as well as my love for all things nerdy. I deal with the excess of my obsessions by writing about them, as you may well have guessed. My chief obsessions are in Batman, Star Wars, Batman, Doctor Who, Batman, and many Marvel comics. Also, I have a small Batman complex.”
Hey, Extremites, thanks for sticking around and sharing your ideas.
We are looking for guest bloggers, or contributors, on fan topics. Do you write or write about comics? Do you write about geek stuff? Star Warsian? Whovian? Tolkienist? Martinite? Lewisite? Potterite? Whatever else? Do you want your ideas to be seen by tons of people and discussed in an informed way? Do you want be one of the masters of Extremis?
Then pop in a writing sample to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for new fan writers who have a scholarly eye and a geeky tongue.
As always we want you to join in! Come be a writer here.
My best, Julian Munds.
Wow, so Jesse Eisenberg is Lex. I didn’t see that one coming. I really am not sure how that’s gonna be. But if the past has taught me anything— did anybody say Heath Ledger— prejudging a casting choice is a terrible idea. Anyway, I’ll allow the chips to fall where they may.
Casting choices aside I thought I’d update you with what to expect from Extremis this week.
First, some news about Benjamin Cook’s articles: Ben’s Grim Corner is going to become a biweekly feature so after today’s article you have to wait two weeks for the next instalment but, don’t you worry, it’ll make the articles even better.
On Wednesday, I’ll be knee deep in Star Trek, again with a long awaited return to my Trek Through Trek, in an article about everybody’s favourite god child; Charlie X. I look forward to returning to the Enterprise.
You only need wait another week to see what the 1st Shitty Moffatism is, as I know how popular that series is.
Anyway, Extremites, have a lovely Sunday, watch the Super Bowl if you care — I don’t— and Excelsior! — Editor of the Extremis Review.
