Government-sponsored lame comic book guaranteed to make nationalists look hip

German government radio says: 'A new comic book launched in the German state of North-Rhine Westphalia hopes to encourage youngsters to have the strength to oppose far-right extremism in their everyday lives.

'What is the significance of the figure 88? What is the attraction of the Lonsdale brand for far-right extremists?

'Curious youngsters can now find out the answer to these and other right-wing related questions and discover how "uncool" neo-Nazis are: It's all in "Andi," a new comic that's been launched by the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.'

'The comic intends to address important questions regarding right-wing extremism. It features Andi, the star of the stories, and his friends Murat and Ben in situations where they face skinheads and the problems that arise from their attitudes and actions.

'There is of course a villain, the skinhead Eisenheinrich, who dresses in classic neo-Nazi fashions, hates foreigners and distribute CDs of far-right bands at the local school.

'In the first edition, Andi and his friends challenge Eisenheinrich and his gang to a game of basketball, which the skinheads lose.

'"It 's hard to find enough people to play with when you only want to play with 'real Germans,'" says the hero Andi.'
