“The figure compiled by The Times comprises a variety of government incentives, including grants, tax breaks, factory construction, discounted loans and environmental credits that Tesla can sell. It also includes tax credits and rebates to buyers of solar panels and electric cars.”
“The federal government also provides grants or tax credits to cover 30% of the cost of solar installations. SolarCity reported receiving $497.5 million in direct grants from the Treasury Department.”
“They shored up the deal with an agreement to give Tesla $195 million in transferable tax credits, which the automaker could sell for upfront cash.”
“Tesla buyers also get a $7,500 federal income tax credit and a $2,500 rebate from the state of California. “
So I’m not the only car-obsessed mad scientist with a love affair with the IRS. What a small world we live in!

Sorry I took so long posting this comic. A lot of other things came up, and a comic that you sketch for free is usually not top priority.
The back-story about Dr. Glace-Noire ‘s organization, the one that prevents the melting of glaciers, needs a second look. I already have Leila Luna as an IRS agent; having him running that nonprofit would make this comic come across as a little too liberal leaning. The glaciers mention could be part of the setting; for instance Dr. Glace-Noire could have a laboratory near one.
I hate zombies. All of them. They ruin a perfectly good evening under the stars. Here I am with my husband sitting on fold-up chairs by our car on some nice, quiet, dirt road. All of a sudden, I smell something like decaying flesh in the air. Then, out of the blue, ZOMBIES!
Zombies are like cockroaches, for everyone you see, there about 10 you don’t know about. No, I’m wrong, there about 100 you don’t know about. One zombie appears, and then BOOM, the whole horde just swarms the vicinity.
Like a thunderstorm, the best place to be safe from zombies is the automobile. Zombies are a bunch of empty shells that are too stupid to notice a live human in a car; they only notice the shape of the object. So when a whole horde of the ghouls just all a sudden show up, we waited it out in our auto.
Just when we thought the swarm had subsided, a few more zombies show up. I was so angry that this plague was not over; I instantaneously jumped out of the car and tore the zombies’ heads off with my lupine snout! Don’t worry about me getting infected with the zombie pathogen — a lycanthrope like me is immune to their diseased carcasses!
