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.

Omg, I died with this page. The fourth pannel is beautiful and Ian is such a tease.
Btw, I've been meaning to ask... a few pages ago, when they arrived to school together, did they plan on meeting and walking to school or was Cort waiting at the entrance for Ian to pass by? I'm really curious!!
Hope he does right by Milly but I love the way Ian is already seemingly 200% more attentive to Cort, where as his relationship with Milly seemed more like just a comfortable friendship that was easy, his relationship with Cort is seeming more... I dunno hormonal, primal, thinking with the other head but not in a bad pure lust way.
Regardless the characters all feel human and nothing's happening too fast I love it.
On a side note I was trying to figure out what was on Cort's left shoulder, took me a while to realise - oh right ginger shoulder.
I am so proud of these two! This comic means so much to me tbh. I have read way too many comics that turned out just to be queerbaiting. I have a feeling that this wont be a very healthy relationship for a while (cause angst) but for entirely different reasons other than just "omg i am gayy whaaa?"
@Hana: Oh - I'm so sorry! Thanks for the nudge :) The boys walked together! I'm guessing they met on the way and are acting casual, but the fact that they're walking together would be a surprise to people who've seen their rivalry over the years :) there has been some time pass between the end of arc two and this first entrance in arc two - so we can assume that in that time they've been communicating a fair bit ^_^
Oh damn, I was not expecting this but I highly approve!! Aplouse and big thumbs up to you!!! >//w//<
And I'm so happy that their relationship is going well!! :D But Ian, you still haven't talked to Amilah about breaking up, you need to get to that! D:
