Ghost In The Shell (Original Manga)

A couple weeks ago I found and purchased the rare out-of-print Ghost In The Shell manga by Masamune Shirow. Being that I have been looking for this manga since around 2004, I was surprised reading it. It is quite different than the movie. The movie only touches upon more the first part and the last part of the book. The book however goes more into detail about Section 9 (how it was formed, and it's operations). Of coarse it centers around Major Motoko Kusanagi, her team and their beginnings... and to the end where Motoko "fuses" with an A.I..   Yep, this is cyberpunk. Being that this book is written and drawn by my favorite manga artist I would definitely say check this out!
