GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE #1
By Masamune Shirow; Translation by Frederik L. Schodt
March 6, 2035. Motoko Aramaki is a hyper-advanced cyborg, a counter-terrorist net security expert, heading the investigative department of the giant multi-national, Poseidon Industrial. Partly transcending the physical world and existing in a virtual world of networks, Motoko is a fusion of multiple entities and identities, deploying remotely controlled prosthetic humanoid surrogates around the globe to solve a series of bizarre incidents. Meanwhile, Tamaki Tamai, a psychic investigator from the Channeling Agency, has been commissioned to investigate strange changes in the temporal universe, brought about by two forces, one represented by the teachings of a professor named Rahampol, and the other by the complex, evolving Motoko entity. What unfolds will all be in a day's work...a day that will change everything, forever. Man-Machine Interface, the long awaited-sequel to Masamune Shirow's groundbreaking Ghost in the Shell and one of the most highly anticipated comics series in many years, finally reaches American shores. Featuring 100 pages of new art and story created since its original publication, most rendered in dazzling full color with awe-inspiring digital effects on a level never before seen in the annals of graphic fiction. Shirow has raised the bar for what can be achieved on the page, page after page!.

AL WILLIAMSON: HIDDEN LANDS TP
By Thomas Yeates, Mark Schultz, and Steve Ringgenberg
Al Williamson stand in rarified air, among the titans of the development of comics as an art form. Drawing from the tradition of the heyday of book, advertising, and comic-strip illustration, Williamson brought a command of craft and dynamics rarely seen, before or since, to a field that had largely valued speed over skill. As part of an amazing stable of young artists at E.C. in the 1950's, Williamson helped change the industry forever, but much of his work of the era has remained hidden. Al Williamson: Hidden Lands at last uncovers these gems, stories from his days at Atlas, E.C., Charlton, Harvey, Dell, and more - most of which have never been reprinted until now, plus a wide array of material that has never before been published, including fascinating sketches and works from his career's infancy and photos from the artist's personal scrapbooks. Covered in fascinating depth bby Mark Schultz, Thomas Yeates, and Steve Ringgenberg and gathered extensive, lively interviews with Williamson. Al Williamson: Hidden Lands is an essential volume for any fan of this giant of graphic fiction. On sale November 27
