Zero Hour & Hypertime (Red Skies III)

1 min read

Host Anthony Desiato and guest Michael Bailey (From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast) dig into 1994’s “Zero Hour” by Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway, which saw time torn asunder less than a decade after CRISIS. 

They also discuss Hypertime, an alternative to the multiverse that was first introduced in Mark Waid’s “The Kingdom” and later featured prominently in the Superboy story arc “Hypertension” by Karl Kesel and Tom Grummett.

This is Chapter III of “Red Skies,” a 13-part podcast epic mining DC Comics’ Crisis-level, status quo-altering events.

Digging for Kryptonite is a Flat Squirrel Production. Key art by Gregg Schigiel and theme music by Basic Printer.
