This brings us to the conclusion of Chapter 7. A bit of a shorter page, as originally the entire fight sequence was planned for 1 page, ultimately decided to give it a bit more attention.

So as usual, I'll be taking a bit of time to rebuild buffer again, the good news is this hiatus will be shorter than the others, I'm looking at 1 month rather than 2. Chapter 8 is planned to be a bit shorter than the others, more of an epilogue that ties up the loose ends and wraps the story up. I'll have more details on how long exactly the break will (I'll post a concrete schedule)be later on.

As always thanks for reading, check back next Sunday for the usual behind-the-scenes hiatus stuff.

Haha! I wonder if he can target the groin like the old Fallout games. :P

Quick! Get the arm! If you and get it patched up soon enough, it can reattach!

We can rebuild him, we have the technology.

Great Chapter! Fridge to the rescue.

*sniff* My Sundays are going to be so empty! Buying Time is one of my favorites. I'll sure miss it. Do you have any plans for other stories??
Notos 18th Oct 2015, 3:47 AM edit delete reply
Yes I'll be doing another story after BT, but it will be quite different.

This sequence has been really sad, but Fridge being awesome almost makes up for it.

wait hold up, the comic is ending?
Notos 11th Oct 2015, 3:25 PM edit delete reply
Yep, the story was scripted out with an end in mind very early on.
SilkenEye 11th Oct 2015, 11:47 AM edit delete reply
Way to go Fridge!!!

Oh, and please tell us that you are planning another comic in the future. This stuff is great!!
Notos 11th Oct 2015, 3:27 PM edit delete reply
I will be doing another one after this, though a very different kind of story. I'm thinking using -some- aspects of this format, but utilizing it in a way that would also make physical print copies an option, since lots of readers have asked for that. So maybe only 1 set of dialogue per frame, but maintaining the animations and frame pop-ups.
Grall 11th Oct 2015, 12:55 PM edit delete reply
Great chapter! Fridge is such a badass! :D
Also, I don't know if you've done this before, but I love that you had action happening across the three top panels when he throws the machete.
Some typos on the last panel. "Theres" should be "There's"
Notos 11th Oct 2015, 3:29 PM edit delete reply
I haven't done it before actually, since it calls for action to be taking place in multiple panels at once - doubles or triples the amount of poses that need to be drawn! Was fun to do it for an action sequence though. Thanks for the typo catch.
Bear 11th Oct 2015, 1:07 PM edit delete reply
Ouch! ...oh dear, one more chapter only !?
What WILL we all DO with our sad, empty lives !???? B-)

Rex Ganymede (3005).

..well, i guess if that has to be the end of the story, there isn't much i can do about it, eh?

obviously i can't ask for spoilers, but i was hoping for some "closure" on a couple of "in story" issues!
Notos 12th Oct 2015, 2:05 AM edit delete reply
There is still 1 more chapter that should wrap everything up for you.
chris-tar 11th Oct 2015, 6:33 PM edit delete reply
I really think your vision of synthetic humans may actually be what the future holds in store for us humans one day. I like how Leon has a built in magnification and targeting feature in his optics. I suppose a synthetic person could have brain implants that somehow improve cognitive function as well, like better and faster neural connections and a built in calculator and added memory storage etc.
Good to see that Galvin is hanging on and not dead from blood loss. He's a real warrior.
I also noticed Leon bled red blood. Do synthetic attachments somehow use human blood to operate? Are synth parts part biological?
Notos 12th Oct 2015, 2:08 AM edit delete reply
They use human blood, but highly enriched with biomass supplements that full-synths, and people with heavy synth upgrades get through specialized food and energy drinks. I was really interested in biomass energy and how we use it now, and thought about how it might be implemented in the future for such a purpose, integrating human parts with synthetic parts.

(In more coherent news, that was a really excellent chapter. Finely-calibrated tension and a huge emotional punch. Well done.)

Notos 12th Oct 2015, 2:13 AM edit delete reply
Still 1 more chapter to go on BT. After that, a bit of a break to ramp up for the next project, which will also be another comic, similar format with some changes to make it more 'print friendly' so the option for physical books is there. Sci-fi, more action oriented, non-human cast (think Green Lantern Corps, all alien) don't want to give too much away.
Guest 12th Oct 2015, 11:39 AM edit delete reply
wow, what a page! That was awesome, i loved the action and seeing Fridge's abilities. It's a bit sad that next chapter will be the last but I'm looking forward to it :D
ChristinaSJ 12th Oct 2015, 2:43 PM edit delete reply
Awesome sequence! Loved the "target"-thing of the leg.

Thank you once again for this amazing comic! Im sad to hear its almost over :S Will chapter 8 be the last?!?!?! *sobs*
Notos 13th Oct 2015, 3:26 AM edit delete reply
Thanks Christina glad you're digging it, yeah the story will wrap in Chapter 8.
ChristinaSJ 13th Oct 2015, 8:40 AM edit delete reply
:/ damn... oh well, good things have to end sometime.
justkeepondriving 12th Oct 2015, 7:26 PM edit delete reply
Fridge totally doesn't mess around!!! Now we know why he makes a great bouncer ;)
Nooooo!! Hang in there Galvin!!! Of course we have to end the chapter on a cliffhanger! :(
But I will wait for Chapter 8 patiently... You're making a great story Notos, I have faith in you delivering an awesome final chapter (and keeping Galvin alive :P)!
Will be checking back in the hiatus to see all the cool BtS artwork. Also, I really like the layout of the panels on this week's page, it's asymmetrical and kind of fun, and it's jam-packed, but it's well balanced. Overall, great work on this chapter!
Notos 13th Oct 2015, 3:26 AM edit delete reply
Thanks glad you liked it, I had a lot of fun with the action sequence, glad I opted to expand on it.
MoonByte 12th Oct 2015, 9:08 PM edit delete reply
Ok, I get why they usually restrict "metal heads", Fridge is going beserk there...

And what a point to end that chapter. And all he wanted to do was get a record for his sweetheart. Damn, that's pretty sad...
Sebastian 13th Oct 2015, 12:07 AM edit delete reply
So chapter 8 is the end? Will this be the last we see of Vinnie and Galvin (and the Buying Time universe) or do you think you'll ever revisit it?
Notos 13th Oct 2015, 3:27 AM edit delete reply
I might revisit it sometime in the future, but I'll be working on another story first.
