During the coronavirus crisis that has killed more than 21,000 people worldwide, everyone is trying to do their part during this extremely difficult time, including Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar Jr.
With many citizens in affected countries quarantined, Neymar Jr. Comics announced on Wednesday that their entire library will be made available to help combat boredom.
“In the wake of global shutdowns and local quarantines related to the COVID-19 virus global pandemic, Fan The Flame Concepts LLC, an independent comic and graphic novel producer, today announced that Neymar Jr. Comics is making its entire library of more than 200 individual episodes across all titles available free to fans who are sequestered in their homes for the duration of the crisis. In addition, its comic book artists will be hosting free live streams with demonstrations of character and panel drawings…”
While the free content will help fans escape reality temporarily, Neymar hopes the comic books will be educational for kids who suddenly can’t go to school due to the health crisis.
“As we have stories suitable for all ages, from early readers through teenagers, this can be a great way for kids and parents to read together or practice their chosen foreign language,” Neymar said.
Neymar recently left Paris and traveled back home to Brazil to be with friends and family during the pandemic. France has been one of the hardest-hit countries with more than 25,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus while Brazil has had far fewer at 2,554.
The last time we saw Neymar on a football pitch in a PSG shirt, he was scoring a diving header against Borussia Dortmund to lead the club into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2016.
Hopefully, this nightmare we’re all going through will be over soon so we can put down the comics and start enjoying some football.
