Corey Taylor is writing a four-issue miniseries, to be published by Dark Horse Comics next year, based on the upcoming Stone Sour albums House of Gold & Bones Parts 1 and 2. He'll be in New York this weekend for Comic-Con to talk about the project, but has already given an exclusive interview to USA Today.
"It's something I've always wanted to do," says Taylor. "I've always been very critical of when comics go south and basically pull the fan out of what the potential is. It's me pretty much putting my money where my mouth is."
He says the comic will explore some of the lessons he's learned in life as he's grown up. "Especially in (the music) industry, you're encouraged to not only appear to be as youthful and arrogant as possible, but you're encouraged to make your own terrible decisions and have this kind of abhorrent behavior. People think that it sells. I figured out a long time ago that that's so boring and so clichéd. To me, it was about shuffling that off and figuring out who do I want to be? Who do I want to try to be? Who do I want to aspire to be?"
House of Gold & Bones Part 1 will be available everywhere October 22 - pre-order your copy now from the Roadrunner webstore!
