The books that needed to be subscribed for a price, have now been made available for free.

A statement released on the publisher's website said: "In the wake of global shutdowns and quarantines related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fan The Flame Concepts LLC, a comic and graphic novel producer, announces that Neymar Jr. Comics is making its entire library of over 200 episodes free to fans."
