With Who’s Who Update '88 now being released, I thought I’d make a post covering Who’s Who Update '89.
Yes. DC did a mini Update '89 but instead of releasing an official update, they had several of their regular titles just run entries in the back of their Annuals for 1989.
This is similar to how DC printed the Who’s Who entries for the Doom Patrol members in Doom Patrol #1, but in this case these were all new and not reprints.
There were 13 titles in all involved, with 62 pages of new or updated entries.
