Big Break is a webcomic that began on February 14th, 2019 and was created by artist-writer team SgtCrisis. It is a series of comic strips about 20-year-old country boy-turned-college student Troy and his three female roommates; mystery woman Cash, buff delivery girl Kris and short but powerful martial artist Miko. Together, they explore life in the big city and the sexy escapades they often get into.
WARNING: This comic can get NSFW at various points.
Tropes pertaining to Big Break (2019):
- Accidental Kiss: Kris, mistaking Ai for Troy, kisses her on the cheek. When she points her mistake, Ai doesn't take it well...Ai: (hitting a punching bag with a doodle of Troy's face taped on it) DIEEEE!
- A Day in the Limelight: The crossover arc with Bible Black has supporting character Joseph as the main protagonist. When Troy is absent, he offers to take over his delivery duties. Unfortunately for him, his costumers are Reika and Imari and they decide to use him to complete the spell and slowly drain him of his "essence". He encounters more characters from the hentai and they drain more and more of his essence until Yazmin comes and foils their attempt to finish the spell.
- Alliterative Title
- All Women Are Lustful: Most of the female characters Troy encounters, including his roommates Cash, Kris and Miko and landlord Rena, always initiate the many sexual situations he stumbles into.
- Amazonian Beauty: There are plenty of well-muscled women in this comic; the most prominent are ex-MMA fighter Kris, Troy's Missing Mom Helena and farm worker Peggy (who also counts as a Big Beautiful Woman).
- Bait-and-Switch: Happens a few times in this comic:
- During the interview process at the bakery, owner Yazmin takes a special interest in Troy and wants to see for her self if he is "quite the handful". Troy dreads yet another sexual encounter.... until another guy comes in and also expresses interest in the job. The applier is a tall, rugged Hunk named Joesph and Yazmin loses all interest in Troy (though she does hire him) upon seeing him. Troy fistpounds in quiet joy.
- When Troy is out doing his deliveries, he comes across two girls living together. The girl calls Troy cute as she pays him for the food and, expecting yet another sex scene, Troy tells them to "do this quick". This confuses both of them and Troy runs off in embarrassment. Indeed, a later panel reveals that the two women are a couple. The other girl still thinks Troy is cute, though.
- Big Damn Heroes: When Joseph finds himself in Reika and the coven's clutches again, Yazmin comes to his rescue, starting by her throwing her flip-flop at Reika.
- Canon Welding: Some characters from the teams' earlier projects make appearances in this comic:
- Brett and Mira were characters in a Gundam fan-project called "Gundam Attrition", where the former was a pilot and the latter an engineer. They were also a couple in that story. In Big Break, they both have been given more mundane jobs (i.e. Brett now owns an indoor pool business while Mira owns a gym.) and, while originally stated to be a married couple, the creators retconned their status as never having met yet in the comic proper.
- The team also worked on an original project called "Ignition Crisis" and they also like to incorporate characters into this comic. In one comic, Veronica Hawke (a former special forces agent-turned-mercenary in IC) shows up as a costumer trying to pull Sex for Services on Troy to get out of paying for a meal she had delivered.
- Crossover: With the infamous Hentai Bible Black, of all things. Joseph volunteers to handle Troy's delivery route and ends up encountering Reika, Kurumi and the rest of their coven. He ends encountering more characters from the hentai and constantly having sex with them until Yazmin comes to rescue him.
- Ecchi: The creators describe this work as a "combination of smutty fun and slice of life stories". Indeed, there's rarely a moment when all the characters aren't often in a state of undress.
- Everybody Has Lots of Sex: Practically all of the adult characters have sex with each other once a comic.
- Gag Penis: In the more explicit pinups, it's shown that Troy is quite huge underneath, at least when it's erect. In fact, most of the male characters prove to be almost as huge as Troy even when flaccid.
- Harem Genre: One of the few Western examples of it's genre.
- Hired for Their Looks: Upon taking a good look at the tall, buff and handsome Joseph, Yazmin hires him on the spot.
- Loving Bully: Abigail, one of Lori's farmhands, used to bully Troy during his childhood. When he sees her again when he visits his grandmother, they end up having sex in the barn.
- Mrs. Robinson: The comic has two such examples:
- Troy's landlord Rena, a divorced former businesswoman who owns numerous properties besides the building Troy and the girls live in. Like the girls, she makes constant advances towards Troy (and often succeeds). In fact, in one comic, Troy having sex with her is considered "rent".
- Cooper's aunt Ava, who constantly tries to seduce Troy upon learning of how her "nephew" lost his girlfriend to some "little runt" and sleeping with him (and very impressed with his prowess). The girls often come to his rescue.
- Parental Abandonment: Helena abandoned Troy when he was a baby to go live in the city and follow her dream of becoming a model. She eventually regrets leaving him behind and tries to get in contact with him.
- Raised by Grandparents: Troy was raised by his grandparents, Lori and Harold, after his mother Helena left him behind to start a modeling career.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Most of the women Troy hangs out with tower over him.
