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.

What a beautiful way to build the tension for the big reveal. You give us four pages between Cort's surprise (and presumably working out who Cail is in his world) and Cail coming to the same conclusion about Cort, with Ian prattling on in the foreground thinking his righteous anger is the important conversation here. Reading over those pages makes me wonder if Cail has sussed to the nature of their relationship. He mentions expecting Milly when they first meet and then on this page obliquely points out that only family would come see someone in prison and he looks at Cort with that piercing looking panel three and suddenly gets personal.
sooner or later, someone would have spilled the beans.. it is a small world. looks like your past is catching up to you Cort. hey Ian, rejoice, your dad is a convicted thief and your bf is a killer - added to the rest of your family included the less living ones. in your place, i'd think about running far away or learning how to make solid rope knots...
@EmmaVieceli: sorry it wasn't meant so brutally or even mean.. it was pure sarcasm on my part. Ian has really been dealt a rough hand, pretty much all his life, i don't envy him. actually, a wonder he can still function so well. i hope Cort will change things for Ian and give him some happiness, he really needs it ^^
