what's the comma after als solche and a verb start afterwards situation here? Could it be a mistake? someone said that there shouldn't be a comma there then the verb wouldn't be in first pos. is that it? Or is there something else going on? Thank you.

The comma is a mistake, yes. The verb is in second position and the Konjunktionalphrase "als solche" takes first position.
