Not unusual in some circles, and there are professionals who have that kind of schedule for a 22 page comic (look at some of the dates listed for early 90s comics, and the gaps which got bigger and bigger as the months went by). I've always looked for people through personal recommendations or knowing what work they have done before, which is especially important if you have other things going on at the same time - don't get so caught up in one comic that you aren't looking at other outlets for your writing at the same time. Been there, did that.
