Hi - I'm Emma! You may know me from comics like Life is Strange, 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 ^_^
My Patreon backers combine to offer me a page rate of sorts and I cater the time I can spend on BREAKS according to how many days a month Patreon can afford me. Right now, I can work on this comic for two days of every month and that is thanks to my amazing patrons! Of course, more support means more time...and it would be lovely to speed up the schedule and power through arc three. I'm currently running a kickstarter to bring a special edition of book two to print - and it has already met its goal! This means print and postage is covered and we will have a special, limited book 2! But it also means anything we make now can supplement the patreon page rate and go towards speeding up arc three. So, whether you're someone who is happy to offer a small amount toward my page rate each month, or you'd rather pre-order a special edition of book 2 (or even both as some of you are! xxx), then there's a way to support BREAKS and help towards arc three.


BREAKS has been running online, free-to-read, for six years now - how time flies. Arc one is in print through Soaring Penguin, a fab little independent publisher, with arc two not far behind in trade format. We've uploaded a page a week, every week, for over SIX years, and have seen some amazing response from readers. My patreon backers have helped make this happen.

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. ^_^
