Hi - I'm Emma! You may know me from comics like Jem & the Holograms, Supergirl, Doctor Who, Alex Rider, Vampire Academy and more...<3
I'm a comic creator by trade and I love my job, but - like many artists - I rarely get to work on my own stories. A while back I met up online with Swedish writer, Malin Ryden, via the wonderful world of video game fandom, and we started writing a book together. At some point, I figured that this story would work in comic form, and provide a kind of slow-burn, real-world, YA, character-heavy, consequence-laden read that I have long felt under-represented on my comic shelves. So we decided to make it, and it became BREAKS.

We're working independently, which is wonderful, and we wanted to offer the story as a free-to-read webcomic with no printed issues - we're straight-to-trade....but of course that also means we're working for free, with no prospect of making money. I take Malin's amazing script breakdown of our original co-written book version, and I edit it, tweak it, rough it, draw it, tone it, shade it, letter it and get it to the readers. It's no small amount of work and I'd love to be able to take on less paid contracts so that I can give more time to BREAKS. And this is where PATREON comes in. Where YOU come in ^_^

BREAKS has been running online for three years now - how time flies. Arc one is in print through Soaring Penguin, a fab little independent publisher, and we're now approaching the half way mark online with arc two. We've uploaded a page a week, every week, for over three years, and have seen some amazing response from readers. My patreon backers have helped make this happen, but I'm definitely not at the 'less contracts' stage just yet. My time has been largely unpaid because I love this comic. But...three years is a long time to work on something unpaid, and it would be lovely to be able to work on it faster - and that's where I look to you, dear reader!

So what is BREAKS?
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.
Key terms: LGBTQA, Drama, Romance, Mystery, Sport, YA, Crime, consequence.

Do please join us at the home of the webcomic, and we hope you like what you see enough to consider becoming a patron of the series and a supporter of my work. Again, we want to continue to offer BREAKS as a free webcomic, and we want it to be title that is only printed in collected editions to be read longform as intended, but receiving support and donations expands opportunities for the project massively. <3

Comics are awesome. We want to bring more awesome to your life. ^_^

Fuzzies galore, snippets and a copy of the printed prologue..yadda yadda...but also...You're apparently a LEGEND and deserve a legend's treatment.
Because of its setting, BREAKS features an awful lot of background characters. Students at the school, people at parties...This donation means that you can become a background character in BREAKS! Yes! Want to hang out with Cortland, Ian and the gang? Well, here's how! (I would need a photograph) - If you're a patron at the time of printing, you'll also receive a personal patron credit in the collected book!
