HEAVENLY BLUES HEADING TO THE BIG SCREEN
Big news for the indie comics scene as 51 Minds has acquired the rights to Heavenly Blues from Scout Comics. The comic, written by Ben Kahn and illustrated by Bruno Hidalgo is pitched as “Ocean's Eleven in Hell.” It features a rag tag group of criminals from different eras, working together to pull the heist of their lives – or afterlives – in an effort to escape an eternity in Hell.
“We are thrilled to work with the team at 51 Minds to bring the world of Heavenly Blues to life,” said Scout’s CEO Brendan Deneen. “Ben and Bruno have created a remarkable story filled with fantastic characters and we can’t wait to bring them from paper to screen.”
Heavenly Blues is currently being published through Scout Comics. Issue #3 just dropped last week. This is a story that's tailor made for a movie so I'm very curious to see how it turns out. Plus, I've really dug the book so far, so I'm excited to see how it ends.
