Whether you thought the reboot-y 2006 Miami Vice movie was as good an idea as Hollywood did, one thing is certain: The show's classic continuity as depicted by Don Johnson and Philip Michael was a force of new wave nature. Working to tap back into the '80s groove, Lion Forge Comics today revealed new preview images from Miami Vice #1 by writer Jonathan London and artists Carl Reed and Geanes Holland, which blend the original show's tone with all-new tales.
If nothing else, recent developments in entertainment have taught us three things: Children of the '80s are now adults, they're nostalgic, and they have money. These three simple, irrefutable facts have led to three Transformers movies, two G.I. Joe films, and Keith Giffen writing Masters of the Universe comics. The nostalgia wave continues, as relatively new digital comic publisher Lion Forge Comics has reached a deal with NBCUniversal to produce digital comics based on Saved by the Bell, Punky Brewster, Miami Vice, Knight Rider and Airwolf.
