Ghost in the Shell

I know I already did Intron Depot, but I think Ghost in the Shell is awesome enough to deserve its own entry. This is the English version of the graphic novel, I also have a bunch of the individual issues packed away in comic boxes as well as a japanese version. There is also a movie and more than one miniseries out there, so it's probably safe to say that this is Shirow's most successful creation.

The story digs pretty deep, drawing heavily from western philosophy to discuss the nature of consciousness, humanity, evolution and the interface between human and machine.
