Neil Gaiman has always been an author who has been willing to donate time and work to charity and causes in which he believes in. According to Comics Alliance on Oct. 6, some of his lost work will now be published to raise money for charity.
The company is Knockabout Comics and they are teaming with the iPad comic book app Sequential to offer a free digital download of the lost Gaiman comics. Some of these comics include artwork by “Sandman” cover artist Dave McKean. There is also scripts, interviews and more as well.
For every download of the lost Gaiman work, a donation of $0.50 will be made to the Malaria No More charity. The goal is to raise $15,000 to donate to the charity. The charity raises money to help make sure that families in Africa have timely access to tools needed to prevent and treat malaria.
For fans of Neil Gaiman, this is free. Basically, fans download the lost work for free and the money is donated based on the amount of downloads. The only problem is that you have to have an iPad.
The work is called “Neil Gaiman’s Lost Tales” and includes a rare ‘80s interview, Gaiman’s original typed notes for “Sandman,” sample scripts, and project proposals. The collection will be available for the free download in mid-October.
