By the creator of Sock Monkey and one of America's most popular weekly comic strips, Maakies. Billy Hazelnuts transmutes nursery rhymes and the golem myth into a storybook about Becky, girl scientist, her friend Billy Hazelnuts (who was created from cooking ingredients) and their journey to find the missing moon while battling an evil steam-driven alligator with a seeing eye skunk. Millionaire fuses the darker spirit of older fairy tales with an absurdist adventure story, throws gender politics into the mix and brings it to life with his demently charming drawing style.

Billy is golem-like being who rampages through Tony Millionaire's outlandlish story telling, and underground graphics, trying to help his friend Becky who is trying to help him. A good, fast (cinematic) read. And fun.
