About The Ghost in the Shell Global Neural Network Manga (Hardcover)
The Ghost in the Shell: Global Neural Network manga features four all-new stories which takes the cyberpunk classic The Ghost in the Shell to new frontiers in this full-color, hardcover collaboration between original creator Shirow Masamune and some of the world’s most innovative comics writers and artists including Max Gladstone & David Lopez, Alex de Campi & Khoi Pham, Brenden Fletcher & LRNZ, and Genevieve Valentine & Giannis Milonogiannis, with illustrations by Becky Cloonan and more.
A covert mission in Shanghai reunites Kusanagi with a wartime rival amid shifting loyalties. The infiltration of an anti-cyberization cult calls for Section 9’s most “human” members to do things the old-fashioned way. A deep dive into the mind of a criminal forces Kusanagi to question the nature of imagination - and her own identity.
The stories in Global Neural Network bring a 21st-century perspective to its questions of human identity and the border between mind and machine that made The Ghost in the Shell one of the most revered manga of all time, and unleash top Western comics artists on eye-popping action scenes starring Kusanagi, Batou, Togusa, Aramaki, and all the members of Section 9!
