    GHOST IN THE SHELL 1.5: HUMAN ERROR PROCESSOR #7 (of 8)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Shirow Masamune

    Part 7 of 8
    When a suspected assassin turns up dead alongside a couple of ex-bodyguards of her intended government-minister target, the agents of Section 9 set out to unravel the mystery only to find themselves tied up in a Gordian knot of intrigues and subterfuges. When the minister goes missing, reports surface of an ace-sniper out to punch the big shot's ticket, and the Section 9 agents race against the clock to get to the minister before the assassin's bullet does!

    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. This deluxe-format issue begins "Lost Past," the final of four Ghost in the Shell tales, presented in the original right-to-left reading format, as originally published in Japan.

    OH MY GODDESS! VOLUME 26 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kosuke Fujishima

    Ever since a cosmic phone call brought the four literal young goddesses Belldandy, Urd, Skuld-and, like an occasional vowel, Peorth-to live in college student Keiichi's residence, his personal life has been turned upside-down, sideways, and sometimes even into strange dimensions!

    The Devil came down to Tarikihongan! As Lind, the Fifth Goddess battles Hild to defeat the Eater of Angels, it is the weaponless, powerless Keiichi whose heart holds the key to victory. But the lingering Demon Angel within Belldandy is causing her magic to make strange hiccups, and it may be Keiichi again who must serve as the vessel of diabolic forces! Can he succeed without Chihiro finally catching on to the facts of his cosmic love life? Plus notes and commentary, and your letters!

    Pencils: Nat Jones, Jay Fotos
    Covers Frank Frazetta, Nat Jones, Jay Fotos

    FRANK FRAZETTA'S DEATH DEALER is the story two warring kingdoms and a mythical order that seeks peace between them. Nine hundred years ago, the land of Iparsia was ravaged by war between the kingdoms of Oro and Edani. As battles raged out of control, a black rider began to appear laying waste to both sides of the conflict, killing the greatest warriors as easily as the untrained combatants. This unconquerable rider was known as the Death Dealer. The kings of Oro and Edani recognized that if they did not end this war, the black rider would destroy them all. A treaty was signed in blood and the Death Dealer disappeared into the primeval forest.

    Legend says that as long as Oro and Edani are at peace, the black rider will sleep. However, after ages of peace, the spectre of war has raised its bloody head once again, and the Death Dealer will not be far behind.

    Covers Camilla D’Errico

    Hana just doesn’t fit in. At school, she feels like the invisible girl. (“No. Not invisible. Being invisible would’ve been cool. I just wasn’t worth noticing.”) And at home, she avoids her parents’ arguments by retreating to her bedroom, where she spends hours online, playing the part of various cool, smart, sexy, and popular alteregos, and kicks back with her all-time idol and very best (though only in her imagination) friend, rebel rocker Avril Lavigne. One night she runs across a mysterious website called Make5Wishes.com. Somehow, she can’t click away–and before she knows it, she’s ordered a package guaranteed to make dreams come true. But will it end up being a Pandora’s box? It all depends on the lovable but wily demon inside. Is Hana sure she knows what she wants? And does she know that what you want can be very different from what you get?

    THE SALON TP

    Publisher:
    St. Martins Press
    By: Nick Bertozzi

    In 1907 Paris, when someone starts tearing the heads off avant-garde painters, Gertrude Stein and her brother, Leo, realize that they might be next on the killer's list. Enlisting the help of their closest friends and colleagues, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Alice B. Toklas, and Guillaume Apollinaire, they set out to put a stop to the ghastly murders. Filled with danger, art history, and daring escapes, this is a wildly ingenious murder-mystery ride through the origins of modern art.
