I was going to say
that the manga for Ghost in the Shell is very much the same as the film, and it is--to a point. Sure, there are the usual structural differences that seem necessary when moving from one medium (and author) to another--Section 9's origins are explained in the manga but not in the film, and Kusanagi has a hand in that. There are more characters in the manga, some of whom die. But otherwise, for the first three "chapters" (not the same as "issues"), the storyline is very similar to that of the film.
Then it all takes a flying leap and goes off in a direction all its own.
