Isaiah and Erin have been given the opportunity of an after-lifetime - steal a sacred treasure from an Archangel, and earn themselves a place in Heaven! But to pull off the job, they'll need to scour the afterlife for the greatest thieves in eternity, including a feudal era ninja with serious substance abuse problems, a Wild West outlaw bored out of his skull, and an Egyptian grave robber pressed into slavery for her crimes. But with the forces of Hell hunting them down, can these two thieves gather their team in time?

    Ben Kahn and Bruno Hidalgo bring another comic that is equal parts thoughtful, dramatic, and funny. Heavenly Blues is a darkly beautiful comic about agency and finding purpose. This one earns another recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Heavenly Blues might have its sights towards heaven in issue three but readers won't be in any rush to leave hell. Read Full Review

    The artwork for this series is amazing. The cover for issue two is by far my favorite of the series so far, which is saying something. It suits the series perfectly, and it really makes Erin's story appear that much more tragic (which I didn't think was possible). I like the rougher quality to the art, it makes it feel more real and fits in well with characters that have been beaten as much as these guys. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Aug 30, 2017

    Even with these fight scenes, the pace slows down a bit with this issue of Heavenly Blues. It's largely setup as the characters are moved into place to prepare for the heist. The additional players are very intriguing and it will be cool to see how they all interact with one another. I'm just anxious for them to get to the action and see how they'll bust down Heaven's door. They're beginning to resemble a powder keg. Read Full Review
