Who's This? Reintroduction

So it's been decided. Every Saturday, starting with Abel on page 1 of Who's Who #1, I will repurposing my Who's This? feature. I say repurpose, because as the original introduction to the project intimated, it was originally meant to cover the more obscure or since-forgotten characters who nevertheless got entries in DC's directory. Now I'm going to go beyond that and give every character in Who's Who an entry which, on a weekly basis, is never going to end, I realize. It'll take me half a year just to get through issue one!

Of course, if I've covered them already, there's no need to do so again. So here's a complete list of who I've covered in this format (excluding non-Who's Who characters like the Green Team, Captain Canuck and Nelvana of the Northern Lights who also got the treatment), with links and everything.

One last thing, directed at fans of our podcasting endeavors: When I started Who's This? in 2012, it was a reaction to Rob and Shagg's seminal Who's Who Podcast, specifically to address the fact that sometimes, they would go "I've never heard of this guy". Cuz it's true, Who's Who was many fans' introduction to some of these characters, and perhaps even our only contact ever with the character. Since then, the boys have also started to do occasional shows branded as "Who's This?" to address the same problem and revisit some of their favorite entries with knowledgeable guests, in audio form. Pop will eat itself. There's no real connection between the projects except we all work together and inspire one another. I hope you enjoy both.

So you ready for this? Abel and the House of Secrets are on tap for next Saturday!

Great to see this feature expanding! Thanks for the shout out to the podcast. And I think us borrowing your “Who’s This” handle was complete serendipity. Looking forward to more of these!
