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.

Uh ohhhhhh, this could be a tricky conversation...
-- OMG YOU GUYS LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON AMAZON TODAY!! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Breaks-Vol-1-Emma-Vieceli/dp/1908030216/ref=sr_1_37?s=books& ;ie=UTF8&qid=1496660049&sr=1-37
That's right, y'all! We have ourselves a pre-orderable BREAKS volume!! So - if you've been enjoying the ride online, this is your chance to get hold of the printed edition as well as pop a little cash mine and Malin's way in return for our work so far. x
There will also be a Deluxe Edition available, but that one will be direct orders only, and super limited at 150 copies, worldwide. I'll keep you informed. But for now - weeeeee! BREAKS in print! ^_^
ok. i think it's just me being very dense and stooopid and a tard as usual - but i don't get this page. like, at all. could just as well being written in chinese or klingon :/
wth is dat dude, why is there a problem (or not)?
@portisHeart: No worries :) So, we all know Spence and Cort don't exactly get on. What Cort is saying is 'will it be a problem that we're both here? Are you going to kick off?'.
They're reached a sort of uneasy status quo, but they probably feel a long way off being comfortable hanging out. But, for the sake of Ian's birthday, they are apparently giving it a go.
The last social event they were at together was the prologue - where it all began - when Cort beat Spence to a pulp and set off the whole mess...so it's probably fair that they're both a little on edge.
And as for Spence's last line...we don't know what it means yet, but it's linked to Cortland's past. We've heard Irena call him it before. And clearly he does not like hearing it from Spence!
Hope that helps :)
Now that I can actually *read* the comic after the book announcement, there's a lot going on here. I like the first panel and how it gives a sense of the crowd as well as Cort's isolation. There's a marked change in Spencer, the bluster is gone, replaced by a wary truce. We see his interest in Millie is deeper than what Ian thinks. And we see that a truce isn't peace as Cort keeps an eye on Spencer as he walks away. It's not all sunshine and rainbows after all. Well, there may be rainbows eventually, but clearly no sunshine here tonight.
@Guest: That's so great of you! We'll be letting patrons have first dibs at those, and then releasing the rest first to online readers - you guys have been with us so long, you deserve some special treatment ^_^
@Auldr: haha, awww! ^_^ Sorry!
And no, the pre-orders won't affect the print volume, unless we get a huge amount and need to consider a bigger run - but it's a fairly good sized run to start, so it should be okay.
Digital edition - it's unlikely, as it's all online for free anyways, but I'll ask!
@Gnildryw: Sure thing! Release date isn't until September, so the pro-order isn't going anywhere. I think we'd have to pre-order an awful lot to sell out of the planned run, so I'm sure you'll be fine. Warlier orders mean we get a better handle on it, but I'd be surprised if it sold out x (it's hard to predict, but I'm assuming this anyways!)
The book looks cool :) I have my name on the special edition so I shall wait till then!
Oh my is that an original surname perhaps? Before Juvy (I assume). His criminal name! XDD
Or Spencer might just be saying it to tease him about his surname which I'm sure is just 'hunt'. Either way I now have Jared Leto singing 'Night of the Hunter' to me in my head XD
