Cybercrime special-ops unit Section 9 has been mobilized to protect a key witness in a trial involving defective micro machines. And the witness definitely needs protection-from remote-controlled corpses packing serious hardware! And if the identity of these dead assassins' pilots isn't enough of a mystery for Section 9, how about the unexpected appearance of long-missing special agent Motoko Kusanagi! 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. This deluxe-format issue concludes 'Fat Cat,' the first of four Ghost in the Shell tales.
