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.

New scene! And we're straight into the day of Cortland's match. eeeee!
Talking of exciting things, I'll be at the MCM Expo this coming weekend, guys. I'll be on table CV87 in the comic village, in a row with my friends Kit Buss, Fez Baker, Robin Hoelzemann, and Widdershins. Swing by the table if you want to talk BREAKS, Life is Strange, Olivia Twist or wotnot...and maybe even pick up one of the limited sketch cover issue 7s of BREAKS ^_^
I'll also be on two panels: One at 3:15 Saturday, discussing video game comics, and one at 5:15 Sunday, talking Doctor Who.
Hope to see some of you there!
Like what you read? This comic is made and distributed for free. Some lovely folks are backing my work as patrons through:
If you like the idea of supporting the comic, or even getting access to the pages every Friday before it goes live on Monday, then why not join us? Or, you can buy me a Ko-Fi (literally, buy me a coffee with a one-click donation), so awesome!): www.ko-fi.com/inkytasty
You can even buy the print edition of the first arc!
I want to sincerely thank you both for these characters and the story you've built around them. It's been years now and I'm still processing and suffering through my own stupid mistakes. Seeing the positive message of this story so beautifully and believably developed in such a natural way has been therapeutic for me. Thank-you for being brave and empathetic enough to put their story out here and take us with you.
@IronDog: Aww you are so welcome. It really has been years, eh? It's kind of amazing how the time has gone. I hope your own processing is going well, and yes - it's always nice to read a story that reminds us we can all make mistakes and find a way to reconcile with them. ^_^
