The new series is available for Neymar Jr. Comics’ more than 3.1 million global followers to read for free on Fan The Flame’s unique digital comics platform at both or its mobile app, where readers can access more than 1,500 episodes across six languages.

The new series is the twenty-seventh overall in the Inked franchise, yet Lay a Price represents the start of a major new arc for the comic universe.  Based on the actual tattoos of Neymar Jr., the series features a mystical ink that brings the body art of the various heroes and villains to life – including the recognizable lion and tiger tattoos now synonymous with the football star. This new story universe was developed by New York Times-bestselling author and comic and graphic novel creator Jason M. Burns. Having finally saved his sister and reuniting the family safely, Junior must investigate rumors of an underground betting club where players supplied with special ink are now pitting their “tattoos” against each other in a no-holds-barred tournament to the death. It’s “Fight Club” but with living tattoos.

“I am really excited to see how the team developing Neymar Jr. Comics have managed to create such cool and interesting stories based on my real-life tattoos.”, said Neymar Jr. “This new series brings my sister back into the story and the adventures for the tattoo heroes we’ve developed now enter a new universe that, just as in life, will make new challenges to conquer together.”
