Notos
Almost exactly 3 years ago I started pre-production on what I originally planned to be a brief animated short. A few months later on April of 2013 I uploaded the first page of Buying Time, the largest and most ambitious personal project I've ever done.

I feel like I've been in labor for 3 years! Phew. This was a very intense and demanding project, but also extremely rewarding and enjoyable, largely in part to readers like you, yes you, my autonoms. If you read a single page of Buying Time, thank you. If you commented, thank you. If you were along for the entire journey, thank you. You've made this project a real ride.

I'll post pertinent updates regarding my art, and my future projects here, and to my Twitter. I can be reached on both, as well as my email listed in the About tab.

(Updated) Big thanks to Barbara, Kendall, Kyler, Charles, Martin, Michael, Bas, Anthony, Steven, Cody, Jonathan, Bas, Anthony, George, Kyle, Russell, Joseph, Andrew, Matthew, Andreas, Lovel, Dennis, Alan and Panda who donated to the comic reccently, very much appreciate your support guys, much love!

Thanks for reading, it's been NITRO!

Thanks for an amazing ride over the past three years. I loved every bit of it.

Saddened that it's over, but it's as they say with 'all good things...'

Thank you for an AMAZING comic!!!

This has been so enjoyable and even though Im sad its over, I think you did the right thing - ended the comic at the right place and right time, so it feels like there are still a lot of story and nothing has been dragged out. And I wouldnt expect less. Throughout the entire comic the comic has been very mature and tasteful, never being boring or cheesy, but telling just enough, so I kept having an appetite for more :)

I'd wish more yaoi artists were like you - creating REAL stories with maturity and heart, instead of all the teenage angsty stuff out there.

Thank you SO MUCH for entertaining us every sunday for years :) It has been so much fun and I wish you all the best in life!^^

Kind regards

Buying Time was really masterfully balanced - for me the animation always enhanced and never overwhelmed the storytelling. I enjoyed your very unique world very much and really loved your character development - how Vinnie learned to be strong and Galvin accepted to be weak sometimes. I really hope you'll visit them again some day. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

I cannot tell you how deeply this story moved and satisfied me. It is a compelling, beautiful story with diverse and rich characters and a homosexual main couple; that alone would have been enough to make it into a cherished story, but you went so much further. Every scene, every panel, is gorgeous and detailed, the story is emotional wihout being maudlin, it made me cry and cheer, and it was a good, solid sci fi story with a clear premise and good follow through. Thank you for sharing this with us. It is precious, and I treasure the experience of having read it.

Gilderbeast 25th Jan 2016, 6:08 PM edit delete reply
I am so glad and relieved the story wasn't a sobfest.
Oftentimes stories about queer characters go in whole hog into tragedy, letting darkness and sorrow and circumstance overwhelm any chance at happiness. Here the opposite happens: the striving for better things (happiness, love, friends, time) acts as the focus, it is a bad world filled with good people and opportunities despite a rigged system.
Again thanks.

Absolutely incredible comic, very sad to see it end. Fantastic artwork, heart-warming characters and story as well as some cheeky nudity to boot! I'll definitely need to watch closely and see what you move on to next.

Kudos on not being afraid to show full frontal in a world where it's still far more shocking and taboo to display a human body without clothes than a dismembered corpse.

This has definitely been the highlight of my comic-roll each week, I recommended it to a good few friends and I can safely say they each agree it's one of our all time fav's

This would make an adorable/incredible animated short which'd likely scoop up an award or two for the subject matter and world-building I'd reckon though I feel you on how tough it'd be to realise.

Your character/fan interaction issues between chapters were also very fun and enjoyable! Really gave them some extra depth in a way a printed medium couldn't effectively manage. I love how you really used the online/digital aspect to full effect with all the subtle animations and panel transitions and such.

I could rant and rave about this comic for hours but yeah thank you so much for the last 3 years of weekly joy! Good luck with your future projects!

Thanks Istauri, appreciate your thoughts on Buying Time and glad you enjoyed it! Anyone familiar with my work knows I'm no stranger to fanservice, though I try to approach it from a point that makes it fun, campy and sexy rather than excessive. I've certainly made an effort to not be afraid of depicting anything either. They way art should be! Hope to see you down the line for my next project.

I haven't commented much, but I'm one of the readers that came aboard when Alex recced this over at the Young Protectors. I was just going to have a little peek, maybe read the first chapter or two, then ended up reading until the wee hours of the morning.

I hadn't seen anything like this kind of format before. It was so exciting to see all the wonderful flash animation, and all the loving detail you put into each page. But more than that, you made us care about Vinnie, Galvin, Fridge, Galena, Papa and the others. That's why I stayed along for the ride, and why I'm sorry to see it end. But it was a great ending. Thank you! Just like I followed Alex from Artifice to The Young Protectors, you can bet I'll be on the lookout for your next project.

P.S.- Mackie got together with Benton? Cool! Good to see her find love.

Louis 28th Jan 2016, 12:38 PM edit delete reply
Heya! I can't tell you how much I absolutely LOVE this comic. The artwork, the story, the setting, the characters... I can absolutely go on and say everything I love about it. I just found out about this comic from a subreddit and binged read it through free cafe wifi's. Every chapter was a blast, and the ending was beautiful.

But don't take this the wrong way, but I feel like there's something missing. And it's bigger than not finding out Vinnie's reaction to Galvin's reason being offgrid, or if Sybil and Fridge are still dating. I still want to know what happens at the end of Galvin's dream. I feel like there's a hidden meaning to the rocket that I never got.

Seeing this comic and reading through your comics and your working on it through jobs has made me feel like I could write my story. I'd been thinking of writing a novel since highschool, and now I'm all done with college and working. I enjoy writing to the bone, and if I'm ever gonna do something I love, it'll have to be through hard work and sacrifice. And this comic has inspired me to push through with it.

It might not end up being anything I imagined it would be, or might end up never seeing the light of day. But I guess we'll see what happens :)

Again, thank you for this comic!
Notos 28th Jan 2016, 9:29 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Hey Louis, thanks and glad you found the comic!

Indeed I didn't explore Galvin's dream too much, I mostly used it as a method of introducing Galvin's turmoil/inability to move on and deal with his fathers death. The dream was inspired by a real one I had myself, though that is where the parallel ends (both my parents are alive) like most dreams it was cryptic and didn't make much sense to me, though I thought it would work well as a visual cue to Galvin having a weakness. I suppose it could have been done using flashbacks to when his father was alive, but I enjoyed the visuals the dream sequence allowed me to do.

I hope you do write your story, as I've said to others who mentioned being inspired, don't compromise your vision, be as bold as you want and create what YOU want, an audience will find you.

I actually started reading this comic at the beginning of this year, and all I can say is that I regret that I wasn't along for the initial ride. I binged the entire things within a week whenever I could find time, and I just want to say thank you for creating something so beautiful. The story ended at a more than satisfying place, so don't worry about that. Yours is truly a unique work of art that deserves all the fans and recognition it has earned and even beyond that. I hope to be witness to your next project, as I believe that it will be something just as wonderful as this, if not more so.

Waited a week because I couldn't muster the words. I still can't decide how I feel; I'm a heady mix of sad and happy that it's finishing. Pretty sure I'm not the only one.

Sad, because this has been a wonderful story in so many ways. Beautiful art, a unique premise, interesting characters, exquisite attention to detail and excellent storytelling… It's a rare and compelling combination, one of the things I looked forward to every weekend, and I'm so sorry to see it go.

Happy, because it's finishing so, so well—as it had to eventually. The big decisions we knew had to be made… are made. Their future isn't certain, but it's hardly precarious—if anything, the long term looks pretty promising. It's a wonderful place to leave us, and we can easily imagine what might come next without having it spelled out.

Finally, I'm glad because you must be so ready for this. You told this story very, very well and expended huge amounts of time and energy to give it life. After giving three years of your life to this project, I'm sure you can't wait to move on to something new; heck, someone less ridiculously disciplined than you would have done so long before now!

Thank you so much, Notos. I'm so lucky to have enjoyed the fruits of your talent, dedication and generosity, and look forward to seeing whatever you decide to do next.

I just... I can't believe this is the end. I have been following Buying Time since mid episode 2, and this is the most awesome comic I've found. It has and incredible story and a really good illustration.
I just can't believe I won't see another post. I'm way too sad :c
But is my obligation to congratulate you for this awesome piece of art. You are awesome.
This was an incredible journey and I'm really glad I've been part of it, in the shadows xd.
You are an amazing artist, and please keep doing these kind of projects. You are really good at it.

Wow, I just caught up with Buying Time after a long break because of life, only to find that it's ended. It's a great story and really well done; I'm sad it's over! Good luck on everything in the future, Notos! It was a lot of fun reading Buying Time!

Someone i follow on furaffinity (don't know who) promoted you. And i'm not sure, but i think it was from the first or second page or something.
So i have been reading since the start basically.
I loved the story, it was amazing. And i can't wait for the new project.
And speaking of that. Where can i find it when it comes out? The only thing i follow on a daily basis is facebook and furaffinity.
All that other stuff like twitter and snapchat, i never liked those.

Hi Casey – I found “Buying Time” because I’m following @beatonna on Twitter and @brumagemm tweeted Kate about it on 2/13, and I went here immediately and burned through your whole comic in an evening! This story has really stuck in my mind, and the reason why is going to sound banal, but: You've heard stories about how Pixar films can help autistic children approach and reconcile their emotional selves? Well, I’m a cynic, and your comic has slightly melted this titanium exterior and let me peek into a world where people are actually NICE TO EACH OTHER. It’s a handy reminder that such people as Vinnie and Galvin, who aren’t constantly taking an offensive/defensive stance, could maybe, possibly, PERHAPS really exist. Makes me want to get out there and find a really sweet guy. It’s a nice thought. Anyway, thanks!

Hey Taylor, thanks for your comment, glad you've found BT and enjoyed reading it! I'm happy to hear the story of Vinnie and Galvin's little journey has touched you, that is definitely one of the best things I can hear about my work. Thanks for reading!

What wonderful characters and story set in a vibrant and interesting world. I loved the blend of social commentary on the main characters' lives and their relationship to each other and to society, and the awesome cyberpunk tech set in a stunning futuristic city, all beautifully drawn with incredible animation. Finally the characters are so cute and lovable, and yet interesting and real. Buying Time is no doubt my favorite web comic I've ever read, and I shed a tear at its beautiful conclusion. I truly hope we get some more chapters in the future! I feel like there's so much more to learn about the world and characters. Cheers Casey, you did a fantastic job!
RR 23rd Feb 2016, 9:27 PM edit delete reply
Forgot to say, thinking back through all 8 chapters, one of my favorite things about the comic is that never is it mentioned that the main characters are gay and they are never labeled as such, nor is it ever even thought of as odd that they were together. While I do hope I never have to manage a Daily Leisure Credit Account, I hope some day our world resembles Hyperion in at least how much the people there are so accepting and welcoming of each other despite their differences. :)

Notos
Thanks so much RR, glad you enjoyed it so much! I've mentioned this previously regarding how I rarely if ever focus explicitly on the characters being 'gay', outside of not wanting to pander that angle; I foresee such social stigmas dissolving eventually, but being replaced with another "class system", one likely involving technology, communication, advertising (it all comes back to money)
...basically for better or for worse I foresee current world issues just transitioning into a new set of issues as technology progresses. I tried to demonstrate that in this story.

I was with this comic for at least a year, I just wish that I hadn't missed the posting of the end at the start of the year.

At least you did it after my birthday. For some reason I think that's something good.

It was a great story and ride. I'm sure everyone has said that. I'm a bit surprised an a bit pleased that it worked out for them.

I was all ready for them to ditch the city and head out there to find his parents and get to see what most of out there looked liked.

But you did something almost a bit braver by having them stay and work through it all and getting to a good place. Not beating the system and not ditching it, but getting along with it.

Great job and I hope we get to see something else from you in the future. :)

This comic has struck very personal chords for me as it accompanied the steps of my relationship with my boyfriend. It's helped me figure parts of it out, and since I could often only see him on Sundays it was great coming home to see what "my" boys had been up to in the meantime.

I'd hate to lose touch with you and your next project, whatever it will be. What's the best way not to miss it?

Damn, just kinda stumbled on this today, great read! Honestly, Vinnie and Galvin's relationship is pretty much my ideal relationship and seeing it in print kinda puts getting a good boyfriend on higher priority now, kinda life changing almost in that way.

I am so late it's not even funny (and I think I may have called myself DannyZephronic before, but oh well)

I took a bit of a hiatus cause Vinnie and Galvin reminded myself of me and a failed attempt at a relationship...

But I'm back and I loved this ending and I can't wait to see your future projects

Also, it may be a good idea to add a "Welcome" page, so as to not spoil new readers on the ending?
Byronator 12th Sep 2016, 12:26 PM edit delete reply
This is very obviously a labour of love. The animation itself is fresh, and doesn't rely too much on trope. The scenery is stimulating, and the poses and content aren't recycled or ignored. I love the composition of all of the pages. Not a single one hasn't left me intrigued, studying it. When I read comics I read the text, and then re-read for the artwork. But this format is so exciting- I look at everything, and don't want to miss a bit of it.

What I especially appreciated was the balance of nudity. Buying Time isn't prudish, but it isn't pornography. It feels personal and just on the edge of cheeky. It's so exhilarating to read.

It's such a bittersweet feeling, because I want more but this story has wrapped up so well. I feel so close I could reach out and touch you, because you only finished this in January. It's so fresh and you obviously need time to recharge, but I'm excited for whatever you're doing next.

But enough blathering. I loved it!
