The “House Of Gold And Bones” comic book finds its first issue being released today by the great Dark Horse Comics and while its no longer uncommon for some illustrated medium coverage being done here on the Official PiercingMetal blog, this one in particular is being broadcast as comes care of Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor who has penned the tale. Its the singers first go at such a task and the story will be loosely based on the music that was heard on the Stone Sour pair of releases that bear the same name. The preview pages look nice but of course its not enough to give you a full grasp of the storyline, so a review of that will not be found in this posting. The four issue series will be illustrated by Jason Shawn Alexander whose worked on a number of Dark Horse Comics properties over the years. I’m sure that the fans of Corey’s musical work will be taking to this title and bringing them along to signing appearances going forward.
I wish Taylor luck in this adventure and hope he spins a compelling tale when it all comes down to it. As a long time comics collector who’s followed a number of the greats I have to say that I expect the same from musical artists who brave this kind of realm. I’ve embedded links to Amazon.com where you can order a copy of the comic or the two CD’s by Stone Sour that make up the two part concept release (which I also still need to hear and review). Of course you can even purchase all three which I think will make everyone very happy.
