    It's a story about the first year of the JLA. They fight aliens, super scientists, and lead the heroes of Earth in a massive war. It was very good, but not really canon anymore due to the recent Crisis.

    One of the better JLA stories in my opinion featuring some of the best takes on Aquaman and Manhunter ever.

    To correct Anubis,it still is canon.Waid made sure it was with this 52 back-up story dealing with the origin of the JLA.

    Which has since then been refuted thanks to Metzler's run on JLA. Now they have it where the Trinity was in at the start, If that's true, you now have to read the story including them from the start. Which means the whole thing doesn't work anymore.

    It seems to still be mostly in continuity, just in a really altered form. So reading JLA: Year One still ultimately means nothing because Superman and Batman have tiny roles and Wonder Woman isn't even in it (that I remember, at least).

    I think the general consensus that was finally reached, after three or four different attempts at a post-IC origin, is that Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman were involved with parts of the Year One story, more so than in Waid's actual book, but not to the degree that Meltzer tried to show. They were sort of part-time members, perhaps. Basically, I think it's at a compromise between Year One and JLA #0.

    In continuity or not,I tend not to care about these things,it's still one of the best JLA stories.
