Oh so Galvin's cyber parts may not have been by choice. Interesting.

Indeed. Next week's page is 'synth parts story time'.

I'll avoid the sexy fanservice there for obvious reasons, so I'll go by saying Vinnie's shyness is adorable, I'd react the same for the most part so not sure if to be jealous or embarrassed XD

Thanks! All of your questions are answered on next weeks page!

Holy hell this hot tub and its themes just got way more cooler.

But yes I am curious about how he lost his eye. :O
Notos 24th Nov 2013, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
Thanks glad you dig the hot tub design! Originally themes were animated too but it caused some serious animation chugging, had to settle for still images...

I just wanted to say I'm a fan of this comic. Also, like you, I dig the whole "casual nudity" thing. I noticed you do it in a lot of your shorts. XD

Hey thanks. Yeah I'm not one to censor.

Do you tumbler Noto? I just wanted to know if there's a way for me to #tag when I draw somthing
Notos 24th Nov 2013, 2:55 PM edit delete reply
No, I thought of running a tumblr at one point to generate more interest, but generally don't get into the whole facebook, tweets, tumblr stuff, just more to keep track of and I get easily overwhelmed!
Grall 24th Nov 2013, 3:44 PM edit delete reply
FWIW, I'm pimping your comic on my tumblr again, so hopefully it'll bring in new readers.
Notos 24th Nov 2013, 11:56 PM edit delete reply
Cool, I appreciate that thanks!

How funny, b/c I just posted a link to Buying Time a few days ago on my Tumblr...shame no one sees it, but its the thought!

Backstory time! HUZZAH!

Also, ALL the fanservice <3

That's pretty cool. I wish MY bathroom had dynamic wallpaper. And a fucking hot tub. And a sexy naked guy in it.

I love the idea and generally apply it anything that isn't flesh and blood in this world; you can pick and choose colors and themes. I remember watching Total Recall as a kid and having my mind blown by the receptionist who changed her nail colors on the fly.
josbell975 26th Nov 2013, 12:59 AM edit delete reply
HAHAHA, I remember that more then the three tits. One of the many signs I knew I was gay.

Oh gawd ... I was laughing my ASS off when I saw the steel girder :D
Very nice idea with the three themes, I prefer number one. And all the steam makes it look quite realistic ... for a comic!

I'm so nosey about Galvin's story, probably the tattoo gives a little hint. Were horses involved? Did they give him a 'second chance'? Man, I can't wait to see what comes next!
And I still adore your work, you're very good at what you're doing ;)
Notos 24th Nov 2013, 3:00 PM edit delete reply
Thanks alot! An upright horse shoe is generally seen as a symbol for luck, if that gives any hints.

I have nothing more to add that hasn't already been said here, but it bears repeating that you're rocking my world so much with this comic. Thank you thank you! :D

I really want that room!

Love Vinnie's verbal stumbling, and er algebra lol
Notos 24th Nov 2013, 3:32 PM edit delete reply
I want that room also. Designing Galvins apartment was basically me making my dream house.
Danny Zephronic 24th Nov 2013, 5:37 PM edit delete reply
The body shape work is brilliant, especially all the adorable poses Vinnie went though <3

The second I saw algebra, I nearly fell off my chair. Greatest dialogue ever BTW
NobodyImportant11 24th Nov 2013, 11:28 PM edit delete reply
I have a couple of questions:
1. Wouldn't Vinnie have already seen Galvin naked in the HCC locker room?
2. Where's "that one scar"? I can't see it.
Notos 24th Nov 2013, 11:59 PM edit delete reply
1. Most likely saw him in undies while he was changing but not nude.
2. The scar isn't anything in particular, just a random thing Vinnie is being self conscious about.
NobodyImportant11 25th Nov 2013, 1:25 AM edit delete reply
Aw . . . I was kind of hoping Galvin didn't wear undies since I didn't see any on Chapter 1 Page 3 or Chapter 3 Page 2. But I'm hardly going to let that spoil my enjoyment of this comic (especially when you just gave us a close-up of Galvin's ass).
MathMan821 25th Nov 2013, 12:25 AM edit delete reply
I am so glad I found your comic. Great storytelling and damn fine artwork. Thank you for sharing it with us.

It's been my pleasure, welcome aboard and glad you like it!
Aurick912 25th Nov 2013, 1:30 AM edit delete reply
Wow, just wow. This comic and Oglaf are the two comics I wait for every week to be updated.

For some reason the male nudity here just means so much more though than what I get from Oglaf, here it's a part of the story, the humor is on top.. where in Oglaf the nudity is party of the humor.

Notos 25th Nov 2013, 3:04 AM edit delete reply
Thanks the comparison to something of the caliber of Oglaf is flattering, I'm glad you enjoy it so much!

TheSmilingPsycho 25th Nov 2013, 3:22 PM edit delete reply
I'm not sure I should be reading this at work, lol.

That was cool how he was able to switch between the different themes. I really like that apartment.

I'm guessing the accident is the story behind his cyborg eye.

This page really makes you feel how nervous Vinnie is.
Notos 25th Nov 2013, 11:53 PM edit delete reply
Ha yeah, this comic definitely classifies as NSFW.
dougwarner59 25th Nov 2013, 4:02 PM edit delete reply
Really is hard for me to relate to the subject matter in this story, but the artwork looks so amazing that I keep coming back.

Fozze 25th Nov 2013, 4:39 PM edit delete reply
I just find Vinnie so freakin adorable and sweet.
DreamEater 25th Nov 2013, 8:08 PM edit delete reply
I know exactly what Vinnie feels... except I would get hard just with anybody seeing me naked. It's so stressful and awkward in showers after swimming on Physical Education :/

Anyway, I'm really courios about that Galvin's bionic parts. Working in HCC - from what we saw from Vinnie's perspective - doesn't seem very dangerous... but who knows? :D
NobodyImportant11 25th Nov 2013, 10:12 PM edit delete reply
Well, Vinnie's just a welder. Maybe it's different for the head mechanic?
DreamEater 25th Nov 2013, 10:20 PM edit delete reply
Right, you have a point. I honestly don't know why I have forgotten this.
Notos 26th Nov 2013, 12:02 AM edit delete reply
No more or less dangerous than your typical factory/power plant job, but when the workplace is the size of a city in itself, there ratio of accidents would be much higher!
josbell975 26th Nov 2013, 1:22 AM edit delete reply
I love how bold his piece is! I love how thats still going on! But he's cut :-(

Poor Vin Vin, worried about a scar know one can see (but says a lot about how he doesnt really care about Galvins synth since he never mentioned it once. I know common place, but I'm sure some ppl would not pursue). I love how he sucks in his belly, we've all done it. He looks better with his belly out! Running in so fast so Galvin cant see him naked, I'm having flash backs.

I always wanted a Japanese sento type bathroom and not just the lanterns. I also like the themes, 3 rocked it! Asagiri Lite (Bubblegum)?

I also like the leg. The knee is so simple but so cool and amazing! I work with ppl that have modern synth (really cant even call it that) and I wish synth was possible today. Five Star work once again!
Notos 26th Nov 2013, 2:01 PM edit delete reply
One of his character flaws is definitely his body issues, it's amplified by how he thinks Galvin is some picturesque god despite having flaws himself.

It's so hot and big.

And I just can't seem to stop "Baby Got Back" on my head.

And dat chest hair. This is going to be hot.

mrminion 26th Nov 2013, 3:46 PM edit delete reply
I'll start off by saying I saw a link to your comic through tumblr and I've instantly fallen in love! Secondly, I love both of these guys! I've always had a thing for chubs and muscle guys, both irl and in drawn/comic format. But usually I've only really been interested in white guys. You've created the first drawn/comic black guy that I've actually swooned over, so bravo, and keep up the awesome work! :D
fistbump 26th Nov 2013, 8:55 PM edit delete reply

while I usually don't reply to comments, I just wanted to talk about the remarks regarding Galvin's ethnicity. This isn't attack, or an attempt to start an argument, but I personally find that statements such as "only really being into white guys" or "first black guy that I've actually swooned over" to be (unintentionally) offensive.

I mean, there are many queer people of colour, and a majority of the queer community (not queer individuals, but the queer circles and so on) in North America is caucasian. Many queer people of colour face discrimination within the queer community, which I find kind of crazy since the queer community also faces discrimination.

Anyways, my point is that many non-caucasian queer people feel insecure and excluded when statements such as "I'm mostly attracted to white men" are used. I also think that it is equally offensive to say that you are only attracted to a specific race. By saying "I am not attracted to, (i.e.) brown skinned individuals", you are saying that despite the variation in face shapes, eye colours, body types and even the shades of brown their skin could be that this entire racial demographic is the same to you... And that they are all not to your taste.

I realize many people say these things innocently (they don't mean to put down others - and you obviously didn't mean to bash any racial groups), but it's an existing problem for both the queer and heterosexual population.

So, to anyone who read this entire post, thank you! And I hope that my post is understood, since it's really my first time voicing this (although I thought about it often).
Tsunaflare 27th Nov 2013, 4:56 AM edit delete reply
Uhh I had to read this twice cause I was unsure about where you were going with this but if I find some one I find hot ill leave it like that but not so sure if this was necessary and why does it matter really to point it out in the first place this story was place in centuries in the future :/
A.Spark 28th Nov 2013, 12:17 AM edit delete reply
Of course it matters. Never doubt that. Thank you for that fistbump.

I'm sorry for any offense I may have caused. I didn't consider others when I wrote the message out. I was mainly writing based on past experiences, but still, I probably should have still thought of others' feelings first. Again, I'm sorry for any offense.

I wish I had the gall to comment on this more than once a month, cause you duly deserve it. Everyone I've introduced this comic too has loved it, and I'm no different. The effort you place into the backgrounds, the genuine feel of conversation, it all reflects your perseverance.

Every Sunday I get giddy and hope you've got another up for us to gander at. You've effectively made this part of my morning ritual that day, haha. Be proud.

Also, I prefer Scene 1, just to say it. Haha.

My favorite part about this, aside from Vinnie's verbal knots, has to be the reflection on the water. Smooth, well-done. Goodness, I'm green with envy here. :]

I just noticed that when Galvin closes his eye, the synth one closes too...How did I miss that? I guess I'm slow, gonna re-read later ones to look for this (like I need an excuse).

I'm re-reading this (because it's awesome) and realised I didn't post a thought I had first time round.

It really looks Galvin is looking at Vinnie's, um, girder. I mean, the eyes are just too low to be aiming at the face it seems.

I think he noticed :)
