If you've come to this webcomic for the first time, yes, it IS the one about the town of werewolves. Right now we check in with Floyd (Hawaiian shirt) on his date with Jon in the neighboring town of Mansfield. Floyd changed to his human form because Jon doesn't know he's a werewolf.

How old is Floyd anyway?

Apparently old enough to have been at Stonewall.

But since we have no idea what year the comic actually takes place in....

I don't have an exact age for him, partly due to the reason LegendaryLycanthrope mentioned, and partly due to having come to realize over the years (from writing my novels and such) that 'contemporary' stories quickly date themselves because of changing times, and partly due to it not really being that important in terms of enjoying the comic. I picture the comic as "now" but considering it's been nearly six years of actual time and mostly a week has gone by in comic time [as per Talbot's arrival in town], it will quickly not be somewhere in 2016-2022 anyway and that would (obviously) increase his age. However, I'm not without a general answer: I'd figured he's in his early 80s. He looks about late twenties.

How old is the other guy, then?

Jon is the same, late twenties.

Well, that takes cradle-robbing to a whole new level.

I'm pretty sure that's not how this is supposed to be viewed, especially should Jon become a werewolf.

The age difference will come into play in the comic down the line... But what else is Floyd supposed to do? Even if he found another gay werewolf, HE could be 209 (for example). That "rule" can't apply to werewolves.

And if you're wondering why he's NOT dating a werewolf, that had been one of the very first things that came up when the idea for the comic started (in the picture I drew mentioned in my profile on here), but that scene has yet to come into the comic.

He looks like he's in his mid 20's or, at most, early 30's which seems to be about the same age Floyd was when he was bitten.

Found some lo-fi for werewolves. It's over an hour of relaxing music.
