Dark Horse editor audio interview 

Courtesy Sunwukong, there is aparantly a half-hour audio interview with Dark Horse editor Chris Warner on Galaxy Anime. The site itself is kind of annoying. I'll see if I can't get a direct link later on.

I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but people have summerized it:

-The collected edition of Ghost in the Shell II might be released in June. It's going to be about the size of the Japanese version. It is also going to be shrinked rapped.

-They are also going to be re-releasing the first Ghost in the Shell in a smaller format plus they will be including the deleted pages for this new edition!

-They say Berserk is doing very well for them and expect more volumes released (hopefully with more frequency than before! ).

-They are also going to re-release Gunsmith Cats in more affordable, non-westernized format in the future.

He also goes into how book readers are not interested in the 32 page "pamphlet" format and sees that the bubble won't burst as big as comic books did.

Sounds like there could be some interesting stuff in there, especially that last part. And as someone who enjoyed the movie Ghost in the Shell, I've always been curious about the manga. Perhaps I'll pick up the re-release of the original.
