Cells at Work! 1 - Akane Shimizu

I'm guessing on the page number.

 

The book's first villain was Streptococcus pneumoniae. Now I'm to the second villain, cedar pollen allergens, and it's hilarious. A memory cell in the background freaking out and making dire predictions, a B cell blowing everything up, and a mast cell turning the histamine dial to max. My one complaint: Shimizu isn't very good at drawing chaos in a way that's still easy to follow. There are panels where it's difficult to tell what exactly is going on.

 

Anyway, my favorite line: "This is the cedar pollen allergy of legend." The guy in the front is the memory cell (please excuse the blurriness).
