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.

MWAH to all of you! What an amazing bunch of comments on last week's page. <3
I do try and get a reply in to everyone where I can. Even if I don't manage to reply to your message personally, be sure that I read every one, and they make me very happy. Malin too, for that matter! I know she doesn't get to pop on here as much as she'd like. But you can bet when she does, she catches up with comments. You lot are fabulous!
And here we go with a new one.
I love the little reminder from the other kid that, even with his arm in a sling, Cortland is someone who instills a certain amount of fear at school. You get the sense that he's not an open bully like Spence, but that whatever stories accompanied his transfer to the school -combined with his sunny demeanour and his performace at the dance - have left people happy to leave him a wide berth :D
Haha, I love the first panel!! ^^ Cortland's expression is priceless, I like it when he back Ian into a corner like that! (I don't know if it's the proper expression, I'm french and well....we aren't good when it comes to speak english, the whole world knows that ;) )
It's true that Cortland has a reputation...I almost forgot it, whith the recent events.
And I still forget it when I see the last panel, cynic Cortland is the best!
Those two are magic together!
Thank for this page, I'm looking forward next monday to see what'll happen.
Ah, totally forgot that he had a cast.
It took me a moment to get why he dropped his food because of that.
BUT I have to say that I don't get the final panel. I thought he asked that guy with the glasses to come back, so why is he saying that to Cort? o_o
Not the food! Well, at least most of it's still okay. Now if only Ian'd kindly help Cort pick em up first before going off to start shit with that bastard (who needs MORE than glasses to see what's right in front of him apparently. What are they for anyway?! A fashion statement???)
