    Default Factual problem with CBR Article-where do we submit them?

    In the "Dark Knights of Steel Just Remixed a Classic Justice League Story" article, The author says that the villains (do I need spoiler alerts in here?) first debuted in Justice League of America #1 (by Dennis O'Neill and Dick Dillin). Huh??? While O'Neill and Dillin were a classic team for JLA, they certainly didn't create #1. They also didn't create JLA #1 (Grant Morrison and Howard Porter did) which is where the villains did first appear (to my knowledge, anyway). I've seen other typos here and there in your articles over the years-but this was the first out and out factual error I've seen. Do media companies (including newspapers and magazines, along with websites) even use copy editors and/or proof readers anymore? Or is everything just run through spell check in Word and then printed.

    Yeah, a "7" is missing; it should read Justice League of America #71, from 1969.
