Deep into the 21st century, the line between man and machine has been inexorably blurred as humans rely on the enhancement of mechanical implants and robots are upgraded with human tissue. In this rapidly converging technoscape, the covert-ops agents of Section 9 are charged to track and crack the most dangerous terrorists, cybercriminals, and ghost hackers the digital future has to offer. Whether dealing with remote-controlled corpses, lethally malfunctioning micromachines, or cop-killer cyborgs, Section 9 is determined to serve and protect . . . and reboot some cybercrook ass! 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.

Manmachine interface

Author: Masamune Shirow
Publisher:
ISBN: 8439598491
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Manmachine Interface está directamente vinculada a Ghost in the Shell pero una nota aclaratoria de su creador deja bien claro que no es una continuación de la misma. El argumento se centra en la cyborg Motoko Kusanagi que tras fusionarse con una inteligencia artificial se convierte en Motoko Afraamakí que trabaja como especialista de seguridad y contraterrorismo en la red contraterrorismo encargándose de neutralizar virus o descubrir tramas de modificaciones genéticas. Brilla con luz propia es el dibujo y las páginas coloreadas por ordenador en las que se han empleado las últimas técnicas digitales. Más de la mitad de las páginas del manga son a color, algo muy atípico y la edición ha sido supervisada por el autor que no deja ningún hilo suelto con sus creaciones.
