The House of Gold & Bones by Corey Taylor


                                                                    Amazon | Goodreads

A review copy was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.

I can't say I'm a fan of slipknot but I was still drawn to the idea behind this graphic novel.

The character lives what seems to be a shallow life full of late night parties. A life full of fun but with seemingly very little substance. When attempting to save the life of someone drowning he is dragged feet first into another world full with hordes of monsters and demons.

This graphic novel is meant to tie in with the album and Corey's life. Not knowing much about either meant this felt very flat to me. It's very short and the story has no real structure. The illustrations also left a lot to be desired with some of the facial anatomy being way way off. 

The beautiful impressionistic paintings between each chapter are what earned the extra star for me. they were so fluid and emotional. 

Just look at the amazing structural detail that was achieved with a muted palate and such loose broad strokes. 

Fans of Slipknot and Corey Taylor will probably enjoy this more than I did. However if, like me , you don't then I'd probably give this one a miss.
