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.

@raziesgirl : ooh, do you mean Cortland or spence? In Cortland's case, we're definitely picking up that there's a history here, along with Irena. She knows something about him that we don't just yet. But as far as most people in the school know, he's mostly quiet, a little stand-offish, and came to the school complete with a lot of weird rumours about his past.
Then there's Spencer, who is basically the school alpha male. He's bullish; a social top dog and not someone to piss off if possible. Though, Ian's known him a long time, so he's earned a little more lenience...a little.
I hope that helps. We have a lot to learn about these characters that will all come to light in time. ^_^
One of my favorite pages
The irritable priggishness on Spencer's face has got nothing on the murderous fury in Cortland's eyes. It's like they glow when he looks back at Irena.
The close-ups on his face are brilliant. Irena with her 'Don't' and 'Leave it' and then Ian saying basically the same thing, and the following closeups on how he looks back at Cortland, just like Cortland looked back at Irena?
Goddamn, Emma/Malin, with the electric chemistry of the writing, and the thick-with-symbols/purpose art, I fall in love with this comic every time I re-read it.
