Booknote: JLA: Terror Incognita

Title: JLA: Terror Incognita
Author: Mark Waid
Publication Information: New York: DC Comics, 2002
ISBN: 1563899361
Genre: Graphic novels and comics
Subgenre: Science fiction, adventure

This volume is the follow-up to the JLA: Divided We Fall volume I reviewed previously. In this series, Earth is threatened by the white martians, a race able to cloak themselves and stronger than the league in many ways. Given that the white martians have managed to capture the Martian Manhunter, they may just have the upper hand against the league. The volume also features the story about Polaris, who gets a hold of the joker toxin, and a special Christmas issue where Plastic Man tells a sceptical kid about how Santa became a member of the Justice League. For readers who keep track, this volume compiles the JLA series #55-60. As I understand it, this volume is the last of Mark Waid's work on the series. Based on what I have seen, I am definitely inclined to go look for the earlier works.
