Neymar Jr. Comics Premieres Latest All-Ages Title, “Golazo”

Second Kids’ Title Available on Enhanced Digital Comics Platform

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fan The Flame Concepts LLC, an independent comic and graphic novel producer, today announced the inaugural issue of Neymar Jr. Comics’ second all-ages title aimed at younger readers, Golazo. The comic is available to read on an enhanced digital comics platform for Neymar Jr. Comics’ 2.7 million plus followers and beyond.

Golazo was developed by New York Times-bestselling author and comic and graphic novel creator Jason M. Burns. The series follows Ezekiel Costa, a shy role-playing-game fan who works up the courage to try out for the school soccer team. When a pair of magical soccer cleats fall from outer space into his backyard, Ezekiel finds he has to step up his game in more ways than one.

“Golazo offers some wise lessons for kids about never giving up, chasing their dreams and always valuing friendship,” said Neymar Jr. “The team at Fan The Flame does a great job of offering Neymar Jr. Comics titles that span the spectrum of interests and age levels – I’ve always wanted it to be a comic book company with something for everyone.”

Like all Neymar Jr. Comics titles, Golazo is designed to appeal to a younger audience’s mobile-driven habits and preferences. Short episodes of content will be available five days or more per week, in a free, ad-supported user interface that publishes in six languages and utilizes multiple reading capabilities, including the Digitoons vertical scrolling format.

Featuring art by Rolando Mallada with colors by Dustin Evans, Golazo is online at or through the dynamic, immersive experience of the Neymar Jr. Comics app. This breakthrough app for comic book fans is available in either iOS format through the App Store or Android format in the Google Play Store.

A portion of the proceeds from Golazo will be donated to the Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr., the athlete’s non-profit social organization. INJR aims to expand opportunities for children, adolescents and their families living in situations of social vulnerability through education, culture, sports and health.

Neymar Jr. Comics is also available for partnerships with licensors and entertainment ventures looking to license new, original stories. The new platform is designed to be a high-engagement avenue for advertisers and brands looking to reach new audiences with authentic integrated sponsorships.
