Lady Explosion Jesus is angry for something, and I would guess "he" is Ardent. But why?
  • Ardent is her pet, slave, or mate (perhaps all three), and has run away. Considering her appearance and bad temper, I would have done the same thing.
  • Ardent has caused trouble in her universe, and she wants to punish him.
  • She is madly in love with Ardent, but he is not interested; therefore she is stalking him.
  • Ardent has violated some cosmic quarantine code, and The Lady is a cosmic police woman responsible for arresting violators. Alice has probably violated the same code, and will be arrested as well.
Her technique is brutal, but perhaps effective. She is expecting the natives to quickly hand him over. We do not yet know if it is real explosions and fire, or just a virtual fireworks display designed to scare the natives.

Whether Our Lady of Heavy Artillery is an ex squeeze or guardian, I suspect she's in for a nasty shock. Alice doesn't appear to be the sort to take people harming her charges lightly. Or maybe they're old friends and will have a chat over a cup of tea.

What Kind of World Does Alice Live In?

Pratchett-like (She's a WITCH!)    5 (18.5%)
It's a simulation.    1 (3.7%)
She's a Caretaker.    6 (22.2%)
The Culture from Iain Banks.    1 (3.7%)
Something Stephen King-like.    1 (3.7%)
It's all in Pintsize's warped imagination.    2 (7.4%)
No, it's actually Winslow's attempt at fan-fic for "The Lottery".    2 (7.4%)
Something else.    9 (33.3%)

I wish that I could have voted for more than one option. You see, I'd love it if, as well as being a sister Caretaker, Ms Boom were someone Alice met at the Academy.

Okay, 543062841247682560[/tweet]]on Twitter Jeph says that he's drawing more explosions (likely for for Friday 12/12's strip). Either a fight scene or Explosion Lady is going to be shooting at Alice for a while.

Well, we can certainly tick the 'Alice is invulnerable' box now! Yes, Ardent is a rat but only Alice gets to cook pests in this town! Now, she gets the pleasure of working off the day's stresses on this new visitor.

ALICE: "Oh good! Someone on whom I can really let loose. Hold still, kid... This may sting for a second or two!"

I still say Ardent got someone pregnant and Ms Explosion wants either revenge  or a date for the marriage.

So "Alice Strikes Back" is our next episode. Fair enough.

I imagine that Alice's retribution will be a bit more targeted than LEJ's indiscriminate bombardment. Say, a plasma fireball in a precise 1 meter radius of LEJ's center of mass. That ought to get her attention.

the explosion looks like a butt.

Well of course it does. This is Jeph's comic, after all.  :-D

Regardless, I"m looking forward to Alice giving a World of Cardboard speech here.

Or DC. It's canon that Superman's invulnerability extends to whatever he's wearing. Or at least it was canon a few years ago; it may not be any more.

I think that maybe the explosions are just an illusion to scare the simple people of this community, and Lady Explosion Jesus didn't expect Alice to see through that ruse.

on Shadows:
At first I was going to opine that maybe there was no sun on Aliceworld and that were was merely a diffuse light source of some kind... but looking back the windmill does throw shadows, peoples' eyes do have slight shadows, and that kid asked Alice if she could turn off the sun... I guess it's just midday and shadows are small? Then L.E.J. came and threw sideways shadows so we see them more.

on L.E.J.:
The Destroy First mentality makes me think babysitter, big sister, or warden more than Mother... but hard to say at this point.

On Alice:
really jonesing for an update so I can see in what way Alice can kick L.E.J.'s ass:

Is Alice hovering? 'Cause last we saw the other person was hovering, but that was two comics ago. Then Alice had to jump to get within punching range. Now, she's had enough time to say a couple sentences, so I *assume* she's hovering, but I honestly don't know for sure since the framing and art doesn't give me much of a clue as to what's going on. Her hand is pushing through the force field, I guess?
(Also, what's going on with her right arm? In panel 3, it's held back as though she's chambering it for a punch, but in the next panel her shoulder looks more forward, like her left arm, as though she's reaching forward with both arms.)

Okay, so nanotechnology is either common or Alice has seen this gimmick before. We can also add flight and super-strength to the superpower list along with invulnerability. I wonder if Alice's powers are from technology too? Is she an android or cyborg?

"Save you"?  This is an execution, then?

I think that it is "... save you from the ass-kicking that you deserve!"

OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!

I'm adding two items to the list of things I know about Alice.

1) She's willing to give people a chance.
2) God help you if you don't take the one chance she was willing to offer.

I'm inclined to think this could be an execution as well. Protectors tend not to take it well when their charges are exposed to explosions.

I'm not yet convinced that this is Alice's style. I think it is more likely that she'll beat Explosion Lady unconscious and drag her, hog-tied, back to where Jack and Ardent are waiting. She'll then tell Explosion lady: "Here is your rat. I expect you two to settle whatever the hell this is sensibly or I'll put both of you in body casts."

A lot depends on who Explosion Lady is, I suppose. If she's another Protector/Caretaker, Alice will not want to kill her unless she has no other choice. If she's just a random nanotech-empowered Ordinary Person, then I doubt she'll hold back against a threat to her charges.

Is it bad that I want Alice Grove to become the daily serial and for QC to be put on the back burner? Other than a few art style issues that I feel like Jeph will work out quickly as he draws more action scenes, all of the issues I have with AG come from the pacing, and most of the pacing issues would be fixed if there weren't a few days between every update. (Basically, it needs room to breathe, but the action is already crawling along due to the time between posts. Adding three comics a week would add some room for pacing AND increase plot speed.)
I love QC, but the plot has never really been its strong suit. I feel like Alice Grove would gain a lot more than QC would lose. Just my 2C.

My friend, you know little of what you speak when it comes to pacing and how many pages come out per week. Try once a week and spend something like two dozen pages or more on just one  fight though it is something wondrous to behold.

oh dear. That's not a good look.

No, she's enjoying this a bit too much to legal... or safe. I'm wondering if this is a dark side with which Alice struggles? Or if it's a dark side with which she doesn't struggle at all? Whether she revels in the occasions when she can beat someone to death?

The next comic should be very revealing about her nature, role, personality and alignment.

That's the Lilith Cashlin* punch right there. Surprised that Lady Explosion Jesus hasn't, well, exploded herself.

This will not end well for LEJ.

*Lilith from Borderlands. Apparently she has a full name.

Are we all forgetting that LEJ's first action was the indiscriminate bombardment of an innocent and defenseless civilian population? That puts it firmly in the category "act of war", or even all the way into "war crime". And given LEJ's technological capabilities I really can't blame Alice for wanting to make sure that she is thoroughly incapacitated before taking her prisoner.
