Stone Sour fans will soon get their hands on the first issue of the band’s comic book mini-series based on their concept double album, House of Gold and Bones . Frontman Corey Taylor says he chose to create the four-issue mini-series because he felt comics would be the perfect medium to showcase the album’s storyline.
“In music, you only really get the emotion of the singer or the music, which makes it hard if you're trying to convey the emotion in a scene,” he tells Comic Book Resources . “With comics, you get that snapshot of emotion: the looks on the faces, the color of the sky, the veins in people's necks, but you don't get the fluid feel of being in the moment, like film or music.”
Taylor adds that he’s still hoping to bring the House of Gold and Bones saga to the silver screen sometime in the near future. “My ultimate goal for these albums is two full-length movies,” he explains. “The music and the story are there, the comics will bring that extra dimension and really give this tale the legs it needs."
The first issue of the House of Gold and Bones comic book series will be available on April 17.
