Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for.
Breaks is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become.
It’s a love story…but a little broken.

This is the second time Harvey has reacted oddly when Ian mentions his family...and let's not forget that cail's words in during the prison visit. Hmm...
Can there possibly be more threads to unwind on Cortland and Ian's path?
(well, of course there can...this is BREAKS :D)
Like what you read? This comic is made and distributed for free. Some lovely folks are backing my work as patrons through:
If you like the idea of supporting the comic, or even getting access to the pages every Friday before it goes live on Monday, then why not join us? Or, you can buy me a Ko-Fi (literally, buy me a coffee with a one-click donation), so awesome!): www.ko-fi.com/inkytasty
You can even buy the print edition of the first arc!
My thoughts (feel free to ignore, this was probably already super obvious and I'm just slow): Ian's dad was part of some organized crime that involved betting on boxing. Cort's dad did something to piss off said criminals. Maybe he refused to throw a match for them or something. So they had him killed in the ring in retribution. Ian's dad was either a part of it or directly responsible. Which sucks either way and I really hope I'm wrong cause I don't want Cort and Ian to have any more issues than they already do :(
