The American magazine Eight by Eight just dropped the new issue - the eleventh - with the cover story about the man of the moment, Neymar Junior. The Brazilian champion officially announced yesterday by PSG for the record price of 222 million, has been interviewed in Los Angeles by Corey Miller in the cover story titled “The Man who will be king”. Miller commented the experience of interviewing Neymar: “Neymar believes you are fundamentally like him, that you have access to the same bright world that he does.” The story is complemented by photographer Roger Neve’s vibrant images and original paintings by Nathan VanHook, the Senior Footwear Design Director of Nike. The Neymar’s cover photo is the biggest news of this issue because it is the first time that Eight by Eight is using a photo instead of an illustration (but no worry guys, there is plenty of it on the inside). In the cover story is completed by a comic strip by the artist Diego Patiño that recall the craziest game of last season: when Barcellona defeated 6 to 1 Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
