Stone Sour will release the first part of a two part series of albums on October 23. Front-man Corey Taylor is writing a four-issue comic book based on House of Gold and Bones: Part One and House of Gold Bones: Part Two.
Taylor says he's always wanted to write comics and compares that industry to the music industry:
"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."
The comic books will be published in 2013. Taylor will discuss the mini-series at New York's Comic-Con.
