'Miami Vice: Remix' brings Crockett and Tubbs back to the streets of Miami at the height of the 1980s again (I think). The art and story are chaotic and messy. I couldn't decide whether I liked it or not, but it's definitely a full on action story.
There is a new drug on the streets of Miami, and it's side effects are unreal. Crockett and Tubbs find themselves fighting something they've never seen before. Meanwhile, their boss Castillo has problems of his own: his daughter Cara has gone missing and he wants Crockett and Tubbs to find her. Can they keep themselves from getting beat up and landing in the hospital? Can they solve both cases and still keep their undercover identities secret? Can Elvis forgive Crockett for not spending quality time with him?
It's a full charge story, and the art is chaotic to match. Unfortunately, this includes the lettering, so it was difficult to read at times, much less follow the action. But, at the same time, the art is charged with a sort of frenetic pace that matches the breakneck story. I'm calling it a two star for an interesting attempt that failed to completely win me over.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, Lion Forge and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
