Tiny Bombs in Your Blood

"Tiny bombs in your blood" may sound like a description of a deadly disease, but it's perfectly normal. This is about your immune system, or more specifically, the "complement system," a complex network of proteins that interact in amazing ways to protect us from infection. The teamwork displayed by these proteins is nothing short of astounding, and it all happens on a scale that even microscopes struggle to see.

So glad you found this one! Because science.
Also, I had never heard of the complement system and the graphics were really excellent. I learned something today.
