Third Ward Shop raising voices in the black comics community

Houston, Texas– Comics are for everyone. That’s the philosophy of Gulf Coast Cosmos Comicbook Co. in Houston’s Third Ward.

Located on Stuart and Emancipation Streets, the store mainly sells comics created by various people starring.

Owner Byron Canady initially started his business selling comics online during the pandemic.

With support from the Emancipation Economic Development Council, he opened a brick and mortar store the following year.

He says Gulf Coast Cosmos Comics prides itself on reflecting the community in which they are based.

In addition to selling comics and graphic novels, he also sells exclusive fan art and apparel and hosts comic book events across the city. Third Ward shop raising voices in the black comic book community
