Corey Taylor of Slipknot is a comic book fan. He even wrote a comic book based on his Stone Sour album, “House of Gold & Bones.” This month Slipknot guest edited the music magazine Metal Hammer, which features an illustration of Taylor on the cover, drawn by “The Walking Dead” comic book artist Charlie Adlard.
Inside there’s a gatefold image with Adlard illustrating the entire band and articles by Taylor, Chris Fehn and Mick Thomson.
Slipknot returns to Iowa May 10 for a show at the US Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids. A spinoff version of the AMC series “The Walking Dead,” “Fear The Walking Dead,” will debut this summer, with the main series returning in October. Adlard illustrates the monthly (sometimes more than monthly) “The Walking Dead” comic book.
“The Walking Dead” cast members Emily Kinney and Michael Cudlitz will appear at Wizard World Des Moines June 12-14.
