Zero Hour: Crisis in Time
was a miniseries that spearheaded DC's big 1994 crossover event Zero Hour
. Zero Hour was designed to remedy continuity errors that had crept into DC titled since the Crisis on Infinite Earths
, and relaunch all of the heroes from the same point in time. The Zero Hour event took place in a five-issue miniseries (numbered in descending order from 4 to 0), and with 27 crossover books, ranging from Action Comics
to Wonder Woman
. Showcase ’94
#8-9 served as a backstory to the event, highlighting the major villain Extant’s creation. Then Zero Hour : Crisis in Time
#4-0 highlights the major story arc, including Hal Jordan’s first appearance since the Emerald Twilight
story arc in Green Lantern
. Issues were released in descending order, providing a "countdown" to the restart of the DC Universe.
Writer Dan Jurgens
spearheaded the event, and wrote the five issue miniseries. He collaborated with individual writers, and, together with editor KC Carlson
, coordinated all of the tie-in comics. Jurgens teamed up with Jerry Ordway
to provide the artwork for the miniseries. Zero Hour: Crisis in Time #0 also featured a pullout three-page timeline of the “new” DC universe, designed by Brian Pearce. The unique Zero Hour logo, used across the miniseries, was designed by Tim Zach.
