[Comic for Wednesday, July 28, 2004]


[[A finger with print visible is held up to a form, showing that it doens't match the print left on the form]]
Akhilesh: It seemed impossible, but it was true. Your fingerprints, dental and iris patterns, even the shape of your face was changing at an alarming pace!

[[View of the patient's blood, with tiny machines visible among the bloodcells]]

[[Akhilesh looks startled at the limp form of the patient in the next room.]]
