Knockabout, SEQUENTIAL to release free Neil Gaiman Special

Infinity Issue 4

Knockabout Comics, publishers of Gilbert Shelton, Hunt Emerson and Alan Moore, amongst others, and SEQUENTIAL, the digital graphic novel iPad app, have announced the forthcoming release of Neil Gaiman’s Lost Tales, a special, free, digital collection of Neil Gaiman’s ‘lost’ comic strips from the 1980s, in aid of charity.

The collection features Gaiman’s collaborations with Bryan Talbot, Dave McKean and others, and includes a very rare 1980s interview, Gaiman’s original typed notes for Sandman, sample scripts, project proposals and more, including an original cover by Hunt Emerson.

The free collection will initially be exclusively available on SEQUENTIAL later this month, and for each download a donation of $0.50 will be made to the charity Malaria No More, with a target of raising $15,000 to fight malaria.

News of the anthology is featured on the cover of the latest issue of INFINITY, the magazine of graphic novels and sequential art, also available FREE on SEQUENTIAL:

INFINITY is also available as a PDF viewable on Issuu
