Question 2 authors and the folder structure

Hi everybody here!

I'm still new to Calibre as I'm using it since a week but only into last two days I really started to add and edit books to my library; and soon I wanted to ask some questions here in the forum, but then I thought it was better to try by myself to solve my doubt.. and so I did..
but there's still something I don't understand, actually..
I'm adding a lot of Vertigo's comics: as comics they have a writer and an artist.. and I'm saving both of them into the Author field (but I also add 2 custom field for each one); all is fine, except the fact that I noticed that the folder structure of the library only show the first author!!
I know that the folder structure of Calibre cannot be changed and I don't want to change it: I only want to know if I'm missing something or this is the normal behaviour of Calibre..

Thank you all for paying attention,
see you soon!!

Thanks AnemicOak for your reply..

OK, so it's normal. But 'till now I always add ebooks with only one (or wrong data) author into his own field; what if the ebook still has metadata with both authors

Some books such as anthologies have a lot of authors.

If you have more than one author the book can be referenced by any of them in the tag browser etc. Things still work correctly.

mmm..
Ok, thank you all for replying even if the question seems annoying to you 'cause I'm pretty sure you already replied a lot of times to similar questions!!

Anyway, I understand that this is the normal behaviour..
What I would like to clarify is that I don't need and I don't want to change the classical folder and file-name structure: I was only asking if it's normal that even with more than one author the file-name only shows the first one (just like the folder, naturally).
Apart form that, again, I have no particular need to change that behaviour.. I already read the sticky thread explaining that.
