Even the creators know this is ridiculous (9/30/2013)

Seriously, it's right there in the commentary

So, they acknowledge the pure absurdity of someone who can create energy constructs, and has ranged ability creating a sword to fight the giant starship that can destroy a space station.

But they do it anyway.

To be fair (devil's advocate time yey) Michael/Garth did say early on that they'd do an 'issue' of a certain number of strips, then a few weeks off using fan-art updates before the next issue begins.

To be fair, there would be explanations for the situation that might make the visual a bit more intriguing. For example, it could be revealed that there ARE limits to Danica's power and she realizes she can't just go blasting willy-nilly and already wasted plenty of juice just playing tag with some fighter ships and a space cowboy--meaning she hasn't replenished enough to face down the new encroaching threat, limited to close-range constructs to conserve.

Or perhaps there are any number of innocent people stashed aboard the ships--utilizing the one "weakness" that they saw fit to give Danica thus far. Maybe she has to be careful, has to cut her way in someplace where opening the hull wouldn't risk a bunch of people getting sucked out to be space-cicles.

I suspect, however, it will be neither of those. Given past experience, I suspect the reasoning behind her using a laser sword will contain the word "metal" or have it implied without subtlety.

I think what makes me sad is that this shot really means nothing--though it COULD have. Danica is thus far utterly unstoppable and the bad guys haven't scored a single victory yet, even any real measure of casualty for the nameless side characters. There's nothing to suggest she won't just cut all the ships in half in one splash page and pose ridiculously... and despite the potential dynamic visual it would be boring. NOTHING is at stake.

I didn't even realize this comic was updating again...it's gone on long enough that I know there is no hope to save this world or even create something interesting. All hope that it could be saved by a real artist working with him is lost. Stick a fork in it, it's done.
