CoEi3XSW8AALBFqKodansha Comics announced at San Diego Comic-Con that it will release a deluxe edition of Ghost in the Shell in 2017, 1, 1.5 and 2, alongside the upcoming live-action movie release in March.

This will be the first time that an English publication of the famous manga will be in right-to-left format, uncut with the original Japanese sound effects.

The comic was previously published in English by Dark Horse Comics and then again by Kodansha.
