    The usage of "feedback"?

    Hi,

    Background:
    Feedback = statements of opinion about something

    My feedbacks are:

    Feedback1: A mistake in the second line of page3.
    Feedback2: The first paragraph of page 5 is not clear.

    Question:
    I want to write a letter to the editor of a comic, do I use "feedback" correctly?
    If not, could you please correct my sentence?

    Sentence:
    I produced 2 feedbacks about the areas which should be improved in your comic.

    Thanks

    "Feedback" is uncountable, you can't have "2 feedbacks". Try: "I have comments about two areas which should be improved...."
