Boulet Brothers: From Dragula to Heavy Metal
You may know the Boulet Brothers from the on-screen competition series, The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula.
“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,” Dracmorda Boulet said in the press release from Heavy Metal Entertainment.
“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 Zamolodchikova, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, Yvie Oddly and (American Horror Story director) Axelle Carolyn as well.”
The issue will also feature the first comic from professional wrestler Danhausen, plus work by Razorblades co-creator Steve Foxe. Also working on this issue are Dan Quintana, who is responsible for the cover, and Isaac Goodhart.
