A brilliant accompaniment to Stone Sours albums 'The house of gold and bones parts 1 and 2'. The story is familiar because it's in the album liner notes but this comic richly adds to the story with some fantastic artwork and images! I really admire Corey Taylor's vision with his recent output, and this, together with the songs and videos really adds to a thrilling adventure. Corey plans to release a film version in the future so looking forward to that. If you like the albums and the story behind it then pick this up!

Now I love the House of Gold and Bones albums, I bought both parts the days they came out. I thought the music was great and the story behind them really interesting and engaging. So when I found out about this comic adaptation I was really eager to give it a read.

The story pretty much follows that of the album, a man is taken to a strange world to confront his fears and battle his inner self. However the whole thing feels a bit short and rushed. The potential of the story was there but I think being a 4 issue series really limited the scope of this. There is little chance for character development or much of a plot beyond the bare bones. If this were given a 12 issue run then I think it could really have been a brilliant book, but 4 issues just isn't enough to do full justice to the story.

This isn't a criticism of the story or the art - what is there is great - but disappointment that this wasn't able to be all it could have been with a few more issues. It's a shame really. I would still recommend this to fans of the band or of Corey Taylor, and it is a good book, it just could have been so much more.

Left some questions unanswered but that was one of the best things about it. I love it when a story wants you to make up your own mind about the ideas behind it. Has made me want to go back and re-listen to the album's to see how the music and the comics tie in together.
