Alice! is a comedy webcomic by Michael McKay-Fleming. It is composed of a mix of gag strips and short story arcs, mostly the latter. Alice combines fantasy sequences with real-life situations in a manner reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbes without nearly as much social commentary. After coloring the occasional strip for most of its run and switching to very large, full-colour ones for a while, Michael is now delivering the comic in a conventional black-and-white, four-panel newspaper format.
The core of the comic is formed by a trio of Canadian preteens/early teenagers. They all moved from grade seven to grade eight at the relaunch.
- Alice Dobson - The eponymous main character, Alice is a cheerful and active redhead girl with an imagination the size of Montana that leaves little room for a grip on reality. She initiates and dominates the many and varied fantasy sequences and is a majority supplier of mayhem, and also by far the least boy-crazy of the lot.
- Dorothy "Dot" Robert Carroll - A strong-willed and realistic straight-man to Alice, Dot is in many ways a contradictory character. She has a strong friendship with Alice and serves as a voice of reason that is seldom listened to. Constantly featured in Alice's imaginings and as often irritated by them, there is some evidence that her resistance is at least partially a facade. Dot grew up with three older brothers, and consequently has been known to hogtie bullies with their own braids when pushed.
- Joanne Kovanchuk - The third girl of the trio, Joanne went into puberty with a gung-ho attitude. A budding man-eater, all signs say that she would've ended up as yet another popular gossiper was it not for her association with the other two. Joanne enjoys Alice's flights of fancy more than Dot claims to, but is seldom included in them. She should not be trusted with anything stereotypically associated with teenagers.
