Corey Taylor, lyricist and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, is adding yet another accolade to his long list of accomplishments. He is a Grammy-nominated musician, best selling author and now he’s penning a comic book with Dark Horse Comics called House of Gold & Bones.
This will be a limited four-issue series with covers from Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Abe Sapien). “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 includes two Stone Sour albums via Roadrunner Records. The songs set the tone with the comic expanding on the story. Stone Sour’s House of Gold & Bones Part 1 album is out now and House of Gold & Bones issue #1 is on sale April 17, 2013.
