    The Latest Pull - Ryan Bielak Mar 23, 2015

    Overall, I found Miami Vice: Remix #1 to be a strong start. The story was fun, the characters fit the era, and the art style, though it gets lost a few times, is great for where the issue wants to go. I'm excited to see where the next issue and story arc will take me. Whatever twists and turns happen, I know that they will take me back to the 80s. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Mar 23, 2015

    Miami Vice: Remixplays off of 80's nostalgia while still just being an entertaining comic anyone can enjoy. Putting Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood together on any project would be a great idea; it just so happens Miami Vice: Remix is that project. Both creators have a knack for being extreme in their own form of storytelling. You might worry that when two people like that come together it might be an undecipherable mess. However, Casey and Mahfood complement each other quite well and because of this Miami Vice: Remix is a hell of a lot of fun to read. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon Mar 25, 2015

    Miami Vice: Remix #1 is a great lead-off for what looks like a good-old fashioned cops and robbers ( or drug dealers) story. Despite that somewhat heavy theme, this is still an exciting book that revisits a franchise that's remembered fondly by some of us. Read Full Review

    Geek Sushi - Peter Rodriguez Mar 25, 2015

    Okay, so maybe I did spoil it just a little, but I couldn't resist! This first issue was well written, with insane illustrations and colors. If you enjoyed the hit television series in the eighties, then you will surely enjoy revisiting these classic characters. If you never watched the show or weren't alive in the eighties, there is still plenty here to enjoy and it's well worth the read! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Mar 25, 2015

    There's one key element to the show that the silent medium of sequential art cannot capture, and that is the mood setting soundtrack. There's a nod to a Glenn Frey verse that was once featured in the show, but song lyrics scrolled across the top of a panel in a wavy line never really succeed in capturing the same emotion. Still, "Miami Vice Remix" #1 has so much swagger that it establishes a look and vibe all its own, giving the franchise its own unique identity from that of the format that birthed it.

    Newsarama - Vanessa Gabriel Feb 10, 2015

    For the leaps and bounds of aesthetic innovation in this issue, it is tempered by a clunky plot and too easy character moments. Still, the novelty is enough to spend the cash and hope for some better juju. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Mar 25, 2015

    Miami Vice: Remix #1 is a generic story told with dazzling artwork. It is the buddy cop tale you'd expect from a book with this title, but Mahfood's electric visuals give it life. If you are a Mahfood fan, or nostalgic for the Miami Vice characters, I'd say this is a sure bet to check out for you. If you aren't a fan of the franchise, take a look at the previews out there in the wild and see if Mahfood's visuals grab you. His work will make or break the book for you. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Martin Doyle Mar 26, 2015

    Personal gripes aside, it is great to see the duo return, if only in comic book form. Crockett and Tubbs are back as never before, in an edgy, over-the-top reinvention that shows plenty of promise. Read Full Review

    Not my cup of tea. Skip this unless you are a Miami Vice fanatic and even then you might wanna skip this. Read Full Review
