This hardcover edition of The Ghost In the Shell volume 1.5 features story and art by Shirow Masamune.
Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor presents for the first time in America the “lost” Ghost in the Shell stories, created by Shirow Masamune after completing work on the original Ghost in the Shell manga and prior to his tour-de-force, Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface, but never collected until now. Focusing on Section 9 agents in their daily battle against technocrime, Human-Error Processor has all the mind-twisting cybermadness you’ve come to expect from Ghost in the Shell but set in a more police-procedural context with action and suspense galore. Features the stories “Fat Cat,” “Drive Slave,” “Mines of Mind,” and “Lost Past.”
This deluxe edition will mark the first time the book has been published in its original Japanese right-to-left format in English and was supervised by the creator. This will be the definitive edition of The Ghost in the Shell.
Released simultaneously with new deluxe editions of the other two books in the original series.
