This historic collaboration with legendary creator Shirow Masamune based on the classic manga features four all-new stories by some of the world’s most innovative comics writers and artists. 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 and unleash top Western comics artists on eye-popping action scenes!
