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 just want to say that I read this page as I was listening to a beautiful cover of "It's Over, Isn't it?" (from Steven Universe) and it really set the mood. Not necessarily the lyrics, but the music and vocals.
Anyway, despite how awesome this is, I feel like things are just gonna go downhill from here for these two... :(
So I literally JUST found his comic, read it all within an hour and WHAT a page I've ended on xD But I love it and the characters are so realistic and just awww but I do want ginger(not tryna be mean here, I love gingers) to tell
his girl about what's up sooner rather than later!
I read this comic in about ten minutes and THIS is where it stops. It's beautiful, it's scary, and I'm worried the ending will be really dark.
It's a gorgeous project that I can't wait to see more of.
@CatastropheJones: we're so glad you like the pacing. :) Obviously we first wrote the story as a novel form, and so it was a slow burn, but with so much more monologing. It's so great to know that it's paying off keeping that pace in comic form! ^_^
And yep - Cort's taking a huge step here, and it won't quiet that monster, but it's a step towards!
@Also a mess: haha, your username!! xx We're so glad you found us! What a time to dive in :)
out of interest, where did you find us? We've had an influx of new, lovely readers, so I wanted to know who to thank for that ^_^
@EmmaVieceli: Sure =) The dear Naniiebim has shared a fanart of Cort+Ian on Patreon and she has linked your Webcomic and your Patreon page, too ;)
I saw the print edition of the Prologue in your shop. Will you print the whole Comic?? I would love to buy it, but regarding the shipping I would prefer to buy more than just the first booklet.
@EmmaVieceli: Oh actually I was just looking at the LGBT webcomics page on boyinpinkearmuffs and since that hasn't updated in a while, commenters are taking it upon themselves to dish out reccomendations!! It's pretty cool ^^ ((Also, oh myyy your other projects are amaaaaazing, (even though you probably hear this a lot) you and Malin are so amazingly talented!!))
I'm sorry I've been too lazy to leave you comments like I used to (because y'all deserve them and still deserve them I'm just too horrible and lazy to show my appreciation I'm sorry)
Also, I'ma ignore the downside to this reciprocation and concentrate on the positive (cause I'm still recovering from the pain caused by that one on-going manga I still regularly read T_T) so THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL GIFT OF A PAGE!!! Y'ALL ARE AWESOME!!!
@EmmaVieceli: Sorry for the late reply. Uh...It's been sitting in my list of favorites for a while, since I have a bad habit of faving things that look interesting and then taking a while to read them. x'D But usually, I find them on the front page of SJ under the new release, most popular, or sponsored comics area.
