Bleeding Cool has reported on errors in the recent Justice League International Omnibus, which saw DC Comics fixing some of them in the second printing without announcing such a thing. Then errors in the Jack Kirby Fourth World Omnibus which saw DC Comics just issue a recall and replacement. Well, you know how they say things come in threes?

The page order printed in the Omnibus is 2,1,4,3 instead.
