Perspective Media partnered with Creative Frontiers to design a comic book based on their radio show to protect their youth from going into the piracy. The story takes you on an adventurous journey of Dirir from childhood to adulthood, showing his thinking behind choosing such a profession and the downfall of it. It showcases how piracy is portrayed as an easy way out to earn money but it puts your life on risk and that of your family; furthermore the shame it brings to your own name and to the ones associated with you.
The comic was able to portray its message in a easy and understandable way through use of effective storytelling and graphics. It was well received by the people of Somalia.
