By downloading a few free Neil Gaiman comics, you could help cure a disease that affects more than 200 million people worldwide. Knockabout Comics and the digital iPad comics app Sequential are collaborating to offer a free digital download of a collection of "lost" Gaiman comics -- including work with artists Bryan Talbot and Dave McKean -- scripts, interviews and more, to help raise money for the Malaria No More charity. For each download, a donation of $0.50 will be made to the charity, with a goal of raising $15,000.

Titled Neil Gaiman's Lost Tales, the book includes, among other things, a rare '80s interview, the author's original typed notes for Sandman, sample scripts, and project proposals. That's a nice package, at the most attractive price you can get, and it's for a wonderful cause.

The collection will be available in mid-October. For more information, check out the latest issue of Infinity, the digital comics magazine which is also offered through the Sequential app.
