New York, N.Y. (September 15, 2020) – Fan The Flame Concepts LLC, an independent comic and graphic novel producer, has released the first issue of Neymar Jr. Comics’ Monster Bytes. The all-ages 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 www.NeymarJrComics.com or its mobile app, where readers can access more than 1,500 episodes across six languages.
The new series Monster Bytes was developed by bestselling author and comic and graphic novel creator Dustin Evans. This new story opens with protagonists Alfie and his digital monster friends on a mission to ‘level up’ and gain more abilities by traversing across multiple digital platforms to seek out more knowledge and data.

To keep from being permanently deleted in this digital realm, the group must work together to get back home and avoid detection from the human world too.
