The War of the Wicked
600 years ago, a terrible battle known as "The Wicked War" raged between man and all demonic creatures that dwell in the night. After years of hiding in the shadows, the clans of Vampires, Witches, Werewolves, and Demons joined forces to take the world from man and claim it as their own. However, they did not succeed, for a mysterious man on the frontlines known as the Pied Piper single-handedly changed the fate of the world as we know it.

Her Story is Your Story
The appreciation of characters like Pepper Piper in a comic book is odd as the enthusiasm for reading novels and manga has grown in the African American community. However, characters like Pepper Piper help us to reflect, explore and enhance our perception of these groups changing our perspective of African American punks, goths, and bisexuals which helps to reduce stereotypes around appearance and behavior.
In most communities, bi-sexuals, punks, and goths are seen as misguided misfits and are not given a chance to make themselves visible. Comic books like Pepper Piper appreciate these hidden cultures, particularly in the Black community, and teens that can relate to her will gain interest in exploring Pepper's world and learning how the world perceives them.
