Mack it's the future, 40 is like the new 10 or something.

And now we know where the title of the comic comes in. :)

So Mack is a million years old?? XD

I can see why that girl would be into him, I mean...I think he looks great ;-) Also I’m worried about him, it’s like he’s got asthma or something.

Btw I just love this conversation and this cafeteria setting, so real yo.

It's hard to understand how years work when you've lived on a spaceship your whole life. XD

Yeah, he's got some stress-related breathing problems. Dude needs to chill out.

And thanks! It was a fun one to design.

Yes... at least, that explains the blotches. I always wondered who he had run over with the thing...

Somebody needs not to be in charge of the survival of (as far as he knew, until this morning) literally all of the human race on a poorly run derelict.

I mean, if he gets this flustered when a girl thinks he's cute...

Those weren't mocking eyes, Mac. They were flirty eyes. The bet was probably whether you were cute.

I like how Eli tries to reassure Mac that years are an outdated and irrelevant measurement of time dependent on one's place in a solar system, and Mac turns that into him really being as old as he feels, measuring years by the number of times they've circled the local sun. That exchange was clever.

He's just too bashful!

Thanks! I wanted this scene to showcase how the two of them interact and their different levels of knowledge about "Earth stuff." This felt like a fun way to bring that out. :)
