In Earth years, that is?
If they're, like 4 (or 40) to 1, this thing about aged Veetans at 25 makes sense.
Black holes are where God divided by zero.
Abra, you should check out the Drive website and read up on the characters. Very kewl stuff. The Veetans live 15-25 yrs, so a 25-year-old would be quite elderly.I don't think it's a matter of a different-length year, just a very productive, short life. Here's the link. Enjoy! http://www.sheldoncomics.com/drive/090912.html
Oh, I read DRIVE from the start (including the reference you provided), but it still doesn't make even "comic strip" sense to me without it being in "Veetan" years. Maybe I'm into it too much.
