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 survived the 24 hour marathon! Well, in a bit of a weird way...as I managed to not sleep for 26 hours before we started. Oh my word. NOt adviseable! But I survived and we made comics and I'm home and new breaks is up and squeeee!
Hope you all had less frazzled (but fun) weekends!
They got a bit close in that first panel, oh the shock of it all! (O_O) I went through the same thing when I did the 24hour comic day on earlier this month! I hope that you got a long earned rest and celebrated too! :D
Something tells me Milly knows Ian more than he knows and pretty much has a feeling about what is going on. Which makes me wonder how she'll react whenever it is she founds out something really is gonna happen between Ian and Cort. I mean she knows Ian a long time so I don't really think she'll be super pissed... she might be mad understandably, but I think she'll be understanding as well. That's how she's come across to me as a person at least till now. I might be totally wrong. Ian and Milly have known each other for a long time and I'm guessing they were really good friends before they became a couple. So more than just being a couple they must be pretty good friends that care for each other. And Ian must care for Milly a lot too and my guess for Ian acting jealous because of Milly talking to Spence is not that much because of jealousy, but because he knows what a dick Spence is and is worried about her hanging out with him. Just my guess though.
@annann: I love this comment! Thank you so much for taking the time to write it ^_^
Yes, Amilah is a pretty tuned-in person...there's a journey to go on here. Whatever happens, she and Ian are very close.
@Xrs: oh, bless you! I wish I had a good answer for you. We do try to post updates and share the comic, but I don't think I quite have the cool factor, haha. Luckily, we love the amazing readers we do have! :)
We have started posting BREAKS on tapastic, actually! It's a great site. It's funny posting up the early pages again and reliving it all :)
smackjeeves is very much the home of BREAKS, but it's good to try and reach new readers on other sites.
Thanks for your kind words. I'm sure if everyone who read BREAKS shared it with others, we could become a bigger club, but we're certainly very happy to have such a great bunch of readers as we are too. ^_^
God, the chemistry between those two is palpable. When it finally breaks (haha) it's going to be the most satisfying explosion.
Of course, now my English-major brain is desperately trying to come up with some clever way of using 'not with a bang, but a whimper' because it will be a bit world-ending, won't it, for each of them to surrender.
I love coming back to find a handful of strips waiting for me. These are some of my favorite yet.
