Joshua Zane is the second protagonist of James O'Barr's The Crow: Dead Time, where he was killed by soldiers in the Old West, until brought back by the crow to hunt down the reincarnations of his killers.


One century ago, A Indian named Joshua Zane is injured by a roving gang of marauders taking advantage of the disarray following in the wake of the Civil War. Joshua must watch helplessly as his wife and son are murdered. However, Joshua manages to free himself after their deaths, and burn down their house to honor his dead family. Mortally wounded, he staggers untold miles until he finds the burial ground of his own crow nation.

A hundred-years later, Joshua finds himself awakened in a horrible world...a modern city. A crow reminds Joshua of what had happened to him in the past, and what must be done. Seeing that his face is painted with the war-markings of his people, Joshua questions the crow, wondering how revenge can be gained upon foes long-since dead. He finds his answer in a murderous gang of thugs, the reincarnated marauders of a century before. Seeing the truth of his quest, Joshua deals out death to his reborn tormentors, and afterwards can finally rest. He is guided back to the burial ground of his people, where the assembled crow warriors note that Joshua face is now painted jet black...the color of revenge.
