Stone Sour's Corey Taylor Launching Comic Series

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is launching his very own comic book series, House of Gold & Bones, and Taylor will be signing in the Dark Horse Booth at New York Comic Con Saturday, October 12 at 3 p.m.

House of Gold & Bones, takes its name from the forthcoming two part concept album from Stone Sour. Roadrunner Records sent over these details about the new comic series House of Gold & Bones with issue #1 due on April 17, 2013:

With stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Abe Sapien), this limited four-issue series marks Corey Taylor's debut in the comics genre. "I've been a die-hard fan of comics, on every level, my entire life," says Taylor. "This has been a dream of mine for years now, and this project was tailor made for a comic, no pun intended. I couldn't have picked a better company than Dark Horse to make this a reality. I have loved several of their titles for many years, going back to '92. If we can get this crazy world out of my head and onto the canvas, it'll be the best thing I've ever attempted. And with Dark Horse, I have every confidence that's exactly what we'll do."

House of Gold & Bones is a unique multimedia experience which includes two Stone Sour albums (release date for Part 1 is October 22, with Part 2 following in 2013), videos, online presence, creative album packaging, live shows, and now the Dark Horse Comics series. Each element will follow and expand on the story. Taylor, already an internationally best-selling author, courtesy of last year's Seven Deadly Sins, wrote the story—as well as the lyrics for the twenty-three tracks that make up the two albums—as a linear story line. The Stone Sour songs set the tone and follow the action, with Taylor's House of Gold & Bones comic expanding on the story.
