Nerd alert!

You know what? "Nerd" may not be the proper term. Maybe it is for me, I build computers, I drool over new technology, I am a nerd, but I'm referring to my being a fan of Buffy and Angel. I'm not sure if this makes someone a nerd in the traditional sense. Anyway, I was a big fan of Buffy and Angel, the tv shows, and now additionally I'm a big fan of the comic books, Buffy Season Eight and Angel: After the Fall ('After the Fall' is now 'Aftermath'). And here's my problem:

We only get one issue a month. We used to get one episode of the television show a week, at least for a few months straight, and now we only get 1 issue a month. Let me break it down a little further.

Episodes were 42 minutes +/-. I can read through an issue of Angel: After the Fall in 10 minutes tops (the first reading, anyways). Only one issue a month! This really, really, really frustrates me.

I realize that a lot of work goes into a tv show, and more money than goes into the comics. But spread out over a year, 22 episodes is one about every 2.4 weeks. Shouldn't we at least get bi-weekly comics? Really? For me Joss? Please?

Just wanted to get that off my chest.
