Today marks the beginning of something different for visitors of highoctanerevolution.com. As mentioned in an earlier post, starting today we are switching to a daily update format for issues of our web comic "Rebellion". Each day of the week we will share a new page of the comic. So you can follow along daily, or wait until the end of an issue's run to check out the story.
We will also post a weekly recap on our Tumblr and Facebook pages. Today's image is the cover of Rebellion 03, which features X-Key wearing a special mask and camouflage. I also want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has sent us messages via social media, words of support and fan art. I do not always get the chance to personally respond to every message so I just want to say thank you for your support of X-Key and Team X. I hope you enjoy the coming releases for "Rebellion" and "Days on Edge"! -JC
5.28.2015 | This week we have an update to the Characters page. Miles, X-Key's young friend and partner, has a profile on the Characters page. We will keep more information about the world and characters of X-Key coming in the future. Be sure to check back in with us next week.

Upon releasing the first initial pages of Rebellion Issue 3 we will be releasing the rest of the comic on a daily page-by-page basis. This means during the window of release for a particular issue there will be daily updates to the website. This is a big change from our previous method of release. Starting June 1st we will have the first page of Rebellion 3 available to read. We believe that this will be a more engaging and exciting method of constant X-Key updates and material.

8.30.2014 | Hey guys! It is Saturday and we have a new batch of sketches. There has actually been quite a bit between this week and last week. So I thought that this week we would keep it to a single post. We noticed the previous uploads came out a bit light for those who were using mobile phones and certain types of monitors. In light of that, we darkened these for easier viewing. We will also be replacing the images on the previous post with darker versions. As with the previous post, you can read the notes in the captions. Well, that's all for today, thanks for visiting and check next week for Rebellion issue 02.
8.26.2014 | We have a little bit of news and artwork for our weekly update. We will be moving our second issue of Rebellion back one week.

Finally, we're posting the sketches of everyone who liked and commented on last week's post. We hope you enjoy the artwork. Please check back with us for future updates and information about X-Key!
8.23.2014 | Today is the very first of our Sketch Saturdays! Every Satruday we will be posting sketches from various parts of Project X-Key.

The sketches for Sketch Saturday can be found on our Tumblr page. Enjoy!
8.20.2014 | The first order of business this week is to let everyone know that the second issue of Rebellion will be available on our website next Friday, August 29th. I also wanted to share some artwork this week of another character in the X-Key world named Lilith. Lililth's story entitled Days on Edge follows her through the brutal wastelands of the future. This story will be available on after Rebellion completes its run. Even though it's going to be a while, I really enjoy drawing this character and I thought I'd give you all an early sneak peek. You can see the images of Lilith on our Tumblr page.
Also, in celebration of our launch of X-Key: Rebellion we have a special promotion for everyone. Want to see a drawing of yourself in the style of X-Key? Just like Team X Visual's facebook page and reply to the message and you can get a hand drawn sketch of yourself in the world of 2335 done by our lead artist. (This will be limited to the first 30 replies to the message) Well... that's all for today's update. See you next time.
