Though the projects were announced by DC last month, it was confirmed in the DC Nation pages of Wednesday’s DC Comics releases that the new “Who’s Who” series arrives this May. The series, an update of the extremely popular ’80s accounting of the characters, teams and locations of the DCU, will be 18 issues and include upwards of 1000 characters. Bob Greenberger, who worked on the original series, has returned to DC to help steer the new version.
Also, the column discussed “DC Legacies”, a series that is a spirtual cousin to “History of the DC Universe”. This one will show the history of the DCU through the eyes of five generations of families touched by the events of the super-hero universe. Expect superstar artists, like a particular father-son combination named Kubert, to be involved.
