Miami Vice Remix #3 is crazy. Everything about it crazy. There’s cops on drugs, an alligator, voodoo drug dealers, a crying police captain, the list goes on and on. What’s even crazier is that everything about this book works. It works really well. Let’s take a more in-depth look…

Writer Joe Casey just dumps everything that he has in his head out on the page, and it works in an amazing way. Not only that, but make no mistake, this IS Miami Vice in every sense of the words. He’s taken everything that was amazing about the television show and turned it on its ear and made it relevant for today’s audience, while not making it totally unrecognizable for people like me, who watched and loved the series.

Visual Funk: Jim Mahfood Art
Hardcover
By Jim Mahfood
IDW Publishing
Release Date: August 28, 2013
Cover Price: $49.99

Visual Funk: Jim Mahfood Art isn’t an examination of Jim Mahfood‘s comics work, that is, the work that made him famous (a brief look at Tank Girl notwithstanding), so there’s no narrative structure, nor a chronological exploration. And unlike similar books examining an artist’s oeuvre, there’s minimal text, save for brief subject introductions by Mahfood.

What it is, is a compendium of mostly posters, showcasing Mahfood’s angular, cartoony, street-level, graffiti, hip-hop via manga style “” page after page crackling with energy and attitude. I also saw many elements in his ink work that reminded me of the art of Bill Sienkiewicz, Ted McKeever, Ralph Steadman, and Joe Ollmann.
