I'm looking to buy the Ghost in the Shell Manga on ebay, and I'm confused.
On one hand, I see an offer for about 5€ for the book with the EAN: 9783897485037. No page count or further info is given.
On the other hand, I see an offer for about 23€ for the book with EAN 9781935429012 and ISBN 1935429019, the last one also mentiones a page count of 368 pages.
Now, GitS was apparantly first published in a serialized form, and the first bunch of the series was then published as one book. This is what I want to buy. I'm worried that the first, cheaper book might only contain part of the series. I know that there's GitS 1.5 and GitS2:MMI, I'm asking about the first Volume. I lack the knowledge of the vast Manga-databases* where I can simply look up with my EAN/ISBN number what I'm looking at, can someone help?
Edit: I'm looking for German or English versions.
*They must exist, right?
