I made a comic about getting ICEd at a Supercharger.

    Hah! Good one.
    Does this happen often? I feel like the Roadster HPCs have long enough cables to reach a different space even when ICEd, but supercharger cables seem really short...

    Oh, see, I thought that was hand drawn. That's what being the daughter of an artist will do ... no software in our house when I was a kid. Just brushes and paints and charcoal and paper and canvas. Old school.

    Thanks!!

    Hand drawn in pencil, inked in pen, scanned into the computer, re-outlined and shaded in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Intuos Pro drawing tablet (I had the Intuos 3, but it finally crapped out after 11 years of unkind use).

    As for drawing style... I grew up on Batman comics, X-Men, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, and Archie. Make of that what you will :)

    Supercharging cables are short, very short.
    Certain superchargers in the NE (especially the ones in CT: W. Hartford, Darien, Milford and Greenwich) are subject to ICE-ing.
    W. Hartford is probably the most annoying since they are behind a busy restaurant and until recently one of the spots was filled
    with ice (snow).

    Nice job @Rheazombi!

    Awesome! Even better that she is wearing wedge steampunk booties- posh, yet practical. Kudos for representing us fangirls. :)
