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.

I'm in love with Ian's face in that last panel. A bit manic, a whole lot of pissed off, and just really effing cool. I also like that he isn't backing down and finally standing up for "Courtney", although let's hope that he isn't going to pay for that.
This page, I finally go to read all of this--in one sitting. I wasn't able to catch up, I'm glad now and christ Ian's face in the last panel is sooo like he's pissed off and a bit of a maniac. Hm, I might have a few questions.
Ian, honestly how do you feel about your girlfriend Amilah? I kind of feel like it's not your usual average lovey dovey couple relationship. Although you two have been dating for quite awhile and share a bond--I feel like you're not really close-close like couples should be you guys seem--distant. And I wonder do you perhaps ever consider her being stolen by Spencer? I admit he's trying to chat her up and I think it's working.
Also how do you feel about Cort? Honestly. I see the way you look at him and that kiss at the hospital didn't surprise me that much, it made me think does he really like him or is he confused? I don't even know anymore.
@YukixKaname1: [Ian] How I feel about Amilah? That's bloody stupid, she's my girlfriend, alright? I mean I've know here since we were six and we've been friends since forever, so it just makes sense, right? I mean I never really planned it that way, and we were just fooling around a bit when she kissed me, but it just makes sense. I mean, it's hard to guess when looking at me now, but it ain't easy being a skinny ginger dweeb when growing up, and me and girls were always... well. I mean I think I am charming, I just don't know why they don't always agree. Besides, she knows me, and I know her, and sometimes it just feels so nice with someone you don't have to explain everything to and who just gets you.
Spencer and Amilah? Naaah, I mean we've known him almost as long, and he'd never go there. Besides, he's got no trouble with girls, at least that's what he's saying, and he's not her type. I mean... I am her type? Right? Besides, she'd never go there, she likes guys with brains. Not to say that Spence is stupid... but...
Cortland: I... okay, that kiss was stupid and a spur of the moment and totally there to find out if he was faking the whole thing. I mean what better way to figure out if he was just pretending to be out of it and secretly snickering about me trying to apologize? I mean I just...
Okay. This miiight be a little bit complicated. And I miiight really wanna be a lot better friends than we are, but... that's all there is. I mean just because he's got super kissable lips doesn't make me gay, right? It just makes him have some weird sort of superpower.
But I'm with you. I don't even know anymore. This is way too messed up.
