Corey Taylor Discusses Stone Sour's New Comic Path

(Radio.com) "They sent me a pass for ComicCon Chicago. I was like, 'Wait, I don't even rate San Diego?" laughs Stone Sour's Corey Taylor about Dark Horse Comics sending him to the lesser known of the two popular annual conventions.

With the first release already in stores and the second set to debut this spring, Stone Sour will unveil their latest masterpiece; the second of the two-part album and adapted comic book series titled House of Gold & Bones Pt 1 & 2. According to the frontman turned author, Taylor says the two albums are meant to be played back to back, creating a cohesive, linear story. This story, he decided during the writing process, would make for an exciting comic book.

Unlike Coheed & Cambria's ongoing Armory Wars comic series, the Taylor-penned House of Gold & Bones will be limited to a four-part monthly mini-series with its first issue hitting shelves in tandem with the release of the House of Gold & Bones Pt 2 album this Spring.

The comic centers around a "human" trapped in an alternate reality. As he makes his way to the House of Gold & Bones, he's chased by a crazed mob, and taunted by a mysterious ally. According to the band's website teaser, "What the human discovers on his journey will be his salvation . . . or his destruction."

"It was always in the back of my mind while I was writing the short story that accompanies the albums that this could be a comic," explains Taylor in an interview with Radio.com, recalling how his big mouth got him "in trouble." more on this story
