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.

Freelancers #1 is a lot of fun. It’s not going to change your life or win an Eisner, but you will definitely have a good time with this comic. You’ve got the perfect formula-hot girls, guns, cars, kung-fu, and dogs. What more could any red-blooded American male want?
Ian Brill takes parts of existing pop culture icons and combines them into an action packed comic, that’s a TON of fun to read. Part Charlie’s Angels, part Codename: Knockout, this comic is action from start to finish. You’ve got the two main characters that work for an agent that may or may not be 100% on their side. Brill sets up a good mystery that leaves you wondering if their agent is trying to get them jobs or trying to get them killed. I can’t emphasise enough how much pure fun this book is! It’s a great spy/bounty hunter tale that never takes itself seriously at all. It knows what it is, and never tries to be anything different. Really good for a first issue.
