    2. Although it might initially seem that surrogate body use would create a crime epidemic (as many owners may use their surrogates to engage in reckless deviant and violent behavior), according to a fictitious article at the end of the issue, the exact opposite would occur. For one, violence inflicted upon a surrogate body is NOT inflicted upon its owners real body. So violence inflicted upon a surrogate body is nothing more than vandalism or aggravated property damage. Second, since surrogate bodies are all registered to specific owners and since the surrogate bodies are equipped with sensory data recording and playback, crime solving would involve a very unchallenging process of accessing a surrogates memory banks in order to determine which owner is responsible for a crime.

    Overall, The Surrogates is a very well written, illustrated, and intelligent graphic novel. While the story is not exactly unpredictable, as mentioned, it is quite thought provoking and engaging. Its the type of story, presented in graphic novel format, that is important enough, and strong enough, to be adapted to film, even if the film looks quite different from its source work.
