DC: Crisis – Zero Hour Timeline

What is in the Crisis – Zero Hour Timeline?

This Crisis through Zero Hour timeline records the trades between Crisis on Infinite Earths and Zero Hour. Crisis was DC’s first major reboot of their characters. Zero Hour was the second, though it did not have the same effect as Crisis. This timeline lists all of the trades between these two events.

As with the other comic book timelines, this one lists the publication dates of the trade paperbacks and not the original comics they collect. Additionally, trade paperbacks can have many authors, so you may see a lot of authors listed here. Original publication dates are harder to track down, and so we focus on the trade paperback publication dates. Suffice it to say, these comics came out between 1985 and 1994 when Crisis on Infinite Earths and Zero Hour were respectively released.

If you enjoyed this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, such as the Arrowverse timeline. A shared universe based on many of the characters that appear in this timeline. And as always, if you see anything on this timeline that needs to change, please let us know. We love to hear any and all feedback you have for us.
