Heavy Metal Entertainment has announced that The Boulet Brothers, horror hosts, producers, drag icons, and creators of reality competition TV series The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula, will be taking over this year’s Halloween issue of Heavy Metal Magazine.
Dracmorda and Swanthula Boulet host this spooky spectacular issue, guiding readers into dark and demented worlds with their own scary stories, as well as horror tales created by Steve Orlando and pro wrestler Danhausen, RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Katya Zamolodchikova, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, Yvie Oddly, American Horror Story director Axelle Carolyn, Steve Foxe and artist Isaac Goodhart. The gorgeous and glamorous cover is created by artist Dan Quintana.
“Taking over Heavy Metal Magazine for Halloween is one of the things we are most excited about this coming season,” said Dracmorda Boulet. “Heavy Metal Magazine is iconic and it’s an honor to appear on the cover and to actually be able to write a few comics of our own for the issue. A lot of people aren’t aware of this but we actually got our start in the comic book industry, so being able to connect the place where we started in comics to where we are working now in horror, drag and television is a full circle moment and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
“We were also really excited to be able to work with our friend Steve Orlando on this who we feel is one of the most driven comic book writers working today,” added Swanthula Boulet. “Steve worked with us and some of our friends from the drag and horror space to also develop their own stories for the issue, so you’re going to see original comics from Katya, Alaska, Yvie Oddly and (American Horror Story director) Axelle Carolyn as well. They all did a great job and we can’t wait for audiences to see the finished product.”
