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.


And, to match Kodansha will also collect the  six hardcover volumes of Akira, also right-to-left and with original effects, in a new box set.
