As I often do, I hit Wikipedia to research this one.  I’m the king of sloppy-ass, single source research when it comes to getting just enough info to flesh out a strip.  But the article on radiation poisoning was pretty interesting.

I think this clip was intended to be futuristic.  This was drawn to be something like a post-apocalyptic high-tech armored rad suit for going into mutant country.  But I’m using it a modern context, part of some kind of special operations team.

Again, for a comic strip, the accuracy bar is just not that high.
