Fritz Ullmann is an illustrator and local politician from the area of Wuppertal. His involvement in politics has inspired him to short, political and satirical comics.

The most recent of his creations is called "Lefty", a fox who comments on the more or less weird aspects of German politics. The comic is to be launched for the unplanned 2012 state elections in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Fritz Ullmann himself is a member of the Left party in Germany and the fox, Lefty, reflects the position of this party, however not without a certain level of irony or even cynicism - A necessary result of more than a decade of political experience, as the author put it. This would be the case because, in his words, politicians can not understand the concept of self-criticism and so a suplement is needed to convey the message... more or less.
