Stone Sour's Corey Taylor Talks Butt-Kicking Process for Making "House of Gold and Bones" Comic Series

Next month, fans will get their hands on the first issue of Stone Sour ’s comic book adaptation of their double concept album, House of Gold and Bones .  Frontman Corey Taylor says that while he’s enjoying the process of making the comic mini-series, it requires more work than he originally anticipated.

“It’s been kicking my butt the whole time,” he tells ABC News Radio. “There’s so many people that you have to over-explain the things that you see in your head to the artist because they can’t read your mind. There’s all these little things that keep a comic moving that I just kind of took for granted because, you know, as a reader you just enjoy it when it’s done really well.”

Taylor adds that he learned a lot while making the four-issue series, and that he was able to bring his unique perspective as a comic book fan into the mix. “[The people at Dark Horse Comics] really tried to, kind of, convey to me how a comic should feel and they’ve let me stray from the norm here and there,” he explains. “So, I think between all of us we’ve been able to make something really exciting."

The first issue of the comic book series will be available starting April 17. House of Gold & Bones Part 2 will arrive at all the usual outlets on April 9.
