Appleseed meets Keystone Cops by way of Mad Magazine. Seriously, at times Dominion reads less like a Masamune Shirow book and more like a Sergio Aragones parody of Ghost in the Shell. I've always appreciated that Shirow's manga had more light-hearted humor than the movie versions of his work, but when he puts the humor to the forefront it kind of falls apart. Still, you get everything you want from a Shirow story: underdog crimefighters, near-future dystopia, and sexy chicks with heavy artillery.

This volume collects the original Dominion series and the "Phantom of the Audience" one-shot.
