Breaks 2: Truth and Dare – now available
In a world hungry for more diverse reads, Breaks bring us ‘the story of two young men discovering who they were, who they are, and who they will become. It’s a love story…but a bit broken.‘ Appealing to the LGBT+ audiences and more, Breaks promises a romance story that slowly unfolds in three separate arcs.
The 2nd volume became available on the 15th of June, 2020 and continues the tale of Cortland Hunt and Ian Tanner. In the words of the co-writer and artist Emma Vieceli: “If arc one was the budding of a romance play set against a dirty schoolyard backcloth, arc two is where the schoolyard backdrop falls down and reveals the real set; it’s jagged and dangerous, and Cort and Ian are going to need what they found in arc one to get through it. Some mysteries are revealed and some deepen. Expect everything to be turned up. More drama, more twists…oh, and a lot more smooching.”
‘Ian and Cortland are all too aware that the bubble they’ve made for themselves can’t last. Shifting relationships and tested friendships may be the least of their worries, though, as they learn more about each other and the pasts they’d rather leave behind. Familial legacy, fragile ambition, and potentially devastating secrets; their budding relationship is going to need a stronger foundation than secrecy if they want to face what life has in store for them together. ‘ (Soaring Penguin Press)
This teaser page is making me want to know more of the story, to be honest, mostly because I hope it will veer away from the common tropes of – lgbt+ people must constantly suffer – but that remains to be seen.
