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.

BREAKERS rejoice! Our painful wait through this scene's painful backstory is done and here's result! As if we expected anything different, eh? I mean, sure, a bit broken - but still a love story! =*_*=
Meanwhile, what a week it's been for me, folks. As you'll obviously know as adored readers of BREAKS, I'm rather fond of teen stories. Coming of age, self discovery, real life and all its pitfalls...the bitter sweet. It's why I wanted to team up with Malin in the first place. I had this Cortland story and she had an Ian story and oh boy did they work well together :) So, with that in mind, you'll be able to imagine how much I loved the game, Life is Strange.
A whole lot.
And now, as finally announced at SDCC on Friday, I'm writing the official comic! I can't express how excited and nervous I am. You can check the details, and the gorgeous cover by my artist Claudia Leonardi, here: https://twitter.com/LifeIsStrange/status/1020390392783462400
And back to BREAKS again...the unimaginably cool happened last night when BREAKS reader and cosplayer extraordinaire, Jenna (novavandorwolf) posted this tweet: https://twitter.com/novavandorwolf/status/1021145226528735233
SQUEEEEE!!! Come August we may have a BREAKS cosplay shoot with Ian and Cortland! OMG! *flails* for now, I'm already over the moon at her Cortland photo. SO COOL!! *_*
And that's the news from me!
