I know this. The post is about human characters who can be used in place of the Zoo Crew. It may be interesting to see the new 52 version of them but I'm just building on an idea I had for a cosmic team.

Yes, they were but that can said of any number of characters. They were unique though, unlike the Justa Lotta Animals who were, in fact, copies of the Justice League. The point I made is there are no counterparts to the Zoo Crew.

This is a great book.  I have one myself and have given two as gifts.

seeing  as how this hasn't been fixed and I'm experiencing the same problem no matter what browser I use, I'm bumping this.

@~The Wanderer~:  not in this case, if you need a comparison, think of Oa as your house and for anyone, the house is the center of everything.  You know of everything around your house, you know your yard and from there, you know your neighborhood, and from there you know your town and from anywhere you know how to get back to your house.  You may not know of anything beyond your town, but you do know your immediate surroundings.  
 
There's an old saying, 'All roads lead to Rome'.  The Roman Empire was vast and, yes, within the Empire all roads did lead to Rome, the center of the Empire.   Well, here, All sectors lead to Oa, the center of the universe.  The Guardians know of everything surrounding Oa and have charted that throughout a certain distance from Oa.  Beyond that point would be the unknown.  Sseeing as how all sectors converge on Oa, I doubt there are unknown 'sectors' of space.  That would be like saying there's a part of your yard you don't know about.

After reading Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors, I came across a review for the title and a point was made that I tend to agree with.  There should be no unknown sectors of space.  As has always been described, the universe is like a pie with Oa at the center and the sectors spreading out from Oa like slices of that pie, thus there are 3600 slices or sectors of space.  There should be know unknown space surrounding Oa.  The Guardians are practically the oldest living beings in the universe.  They searched the universe in an effort to put an end to magic so that science would prevail.  They have a Corps patrolling the entire known universe.  How can there be unknown sectors?   
 
Now I'm not disagreeing with the use of the term 'unknown', but rather it preceding the term 'sector'.  The sectors have been mapped out. All sectors surround Oa, all sectors meet at Oa which is why it's said a Green Lantern is effectively patrolling his/her home sector while on Oa, and basically all sectors spread out infinitely from there.  But even for the Guardians' vast knowledge and longevity, I still don't believe they know everything about the universe, which is why I would think it would be better to say there are unknown 'regions' of sectors, the universe beyond what the Guardians have learned.   
 
There really is no need to add confusion to this part of the Green Lantern mythos.  It's pretty much as straight-forward as you can get and probably the easiest thing about the GL mythos to understand.   ;)

@Bruce Vain: Yeah, I came across the casting call for zombies but you have to have a flexible schedule.  I have a regular 9-6 job so that wouldn't have worked.  I'd love to be a zombie on the show though.  The extras go through "zombie school" and everything, hehe.
