So, it looks like the zombie-filled, hyper-colored, Ferrari-crashing, James Brown-resurrecting drug haze of a comic we call MIAMI VICE: REMIX is about to reach its bloody end next week on July 1.

But there’s nothing to be sad about — the fifth and final issue of writer Joe Casey’s and artist Jim Mahfood’s criminal justice head trip just turns everything past 11 for a brutal final showdown between the Big Bad and our heroes, especially good old Sonny Crockett who faces down sheer terror with the resolve only a Miami Vice cop could muster. Fans of the original series will love how this tangent from the first season fills out some fascinating backstory while managing to create something entirely standalone and new.
