Publisher Description

A crimelord exploits prisoners of war to run a remotely-controlled global strike force, and the investigation reunites Kusanagi with an old friend and pits them both against Chinese security forces. A family see their dead daughter on television, except she looks 15 years younger than she did when she died. The infiltration of anti-cyberization cult calls for Section 9's most "human" members to abandon the support of their enhanced colleagues and do things the old-fashioned way. The stories in Global Neural Network bring a global, 21st-century persepctive 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.

Review

"This book is a treasure... the most interesting that the franchise has been in what feels like a decade." -Paste "Hits all the familiar beats --hard-boiled dialogue, big action set-pieces, and fully grounded, gritty science fiction elements -- but does so with style and real ingenuity... Oh my yes." -NPR

"Every story in the anthology really grabbed onto one or more aspects of the original and ran with it. Issues of access to information, healthcare, safety; the meaning of identity in a world were you can be - and are - multiple people; the meaning of borders, of ageing, of family all were highlighted in extremely smart ways... Damned good." -Erica Friedman, Okazu

"Very satisfying! You don't need to know anything about Ghost in the Shell to enjoy this!" -Comics Beat

"Required reading." -Paste Magazine

"A must." -Multiversity Comics
