    1. Why is Season 9 much shorter then Season 8?

    2. Why does it take so long, until the library Editions vols come out, compared to the Paperbacks vols?

    So they can get you to buy the paperbacks and the library editions?

    It's not that season 9 is short, it's that season 8 is abnormally long.

    Business reasons, I reckon.

    If I remember correctly, S8 was supposed to be shorter than 40 issues, but it was stretched out for some reason. It's been a long time, so I don't remember exactly.
     
    Puffy: That reason would be interesting...

    Season 9 is longer than Season 8- Season 9 is both Buffy AND Angel and Faith- thats more that 40 issues.

    But reading Season 9 sure feels longer all on its own. :(
