Billy Nguyen
Created by John Hartman and Stanley W. Shaw

"Mad. Bad. Dangerous to Know... BILLY NGUYEN: Mystery-Crackin' Gun-Totin' Money-Lovin' Coffee-Drinkin' Beer-Swillin' Free-Loadin' Motherfucker"

And that's just according to the T-shirts...

Billy is Seattle's hippest, most-irreverent, cooler-than-cool Vietnamese new wave private peeper, running on coffee and non-stop chatter, riding the 1980s' indie comix explosion and breaking the graphic fourth (or is it fifth?) wall, commenting on the script, the writers, the readers, etc. And the supporting cast seems to have stepped out of a Marx Brothers' flick.

A very cool comic, almost impossible to find these days.
