Who are We?


BYRON CANADY -Founder, Co-Owner, CEO
Superpowers: Visual Content Creator, Big-headed Idea Projection & Cosmic Connector of the Dots

Origin Story:
From the first Spider-man comic book multi-pack given to him by his dad, eight-year-old Byron was immediately bitten by the comic book bug. Since then Byron has actively sought other blerds like himself to be super friends with. Through his uncanny ability to network and see the good in every outcome, using his powers for good by empowering others, and for comic book collecting. With each opportunity, Byron hones his skills as a dream builder all while watching...empowering...connecting...

When he’s not reading comics, Byron enjoys digital content, television shows, and movies -comic book related, of course.

SHARMANE FURY - Co-Owner, COO

Superpowers:
Audio Podcaster Supreme, Twelfth level Multi-tasker & Mystic Wielder of the Reality Check Stone

Origin Story: As a child, Sharmane was transported to an alternate universe by picking up a comic book from the spinner rack in the local Korean corner store. In this alternate universe, she was imbued with incredible superpowers. Yet, because society is dumb, she knew could not reveal her true identity, not even those closest to her, as a comic book fan...That was then and lessons were learned. With great power comes great responsibility and so Sharmane became the quintessential champion and official speaker-upper of all things underrepresented in the comic industry.

The walls of Sharmane’s Fortress of Blerditude are reinforced with Comic fan art, collectibles, and cosmic portals.

How can you help?

We originally had plans to open our brick and mortar store in the Third Ward of Houston, Texas in the summer of 2020. Obviously, due to the pandemic, it was not safe to do so.  We went back to the workshop, re-tooled our plan, and launched our e-commerce website https://gulfcoastcoasmos.com so that we could stay on track with our business plan. We are looking forward to opening our brick and mortar shop during the summer of 2021 but to do that, we need help from the cosmic community. 

Your generous support will help build the business so that when we are able to open our shop next summer, we will immediately be able to serve our community. We will share our experiences and observations from the e-commerce operations as well as preparing and building out our brick and mortar store. AND if you check out our Youtube Channel, you will find interviews with comic book creators, artists, writers, filmmakers, and more.

We hope you will enjoy this adventure with us. You find more details about us on our social media  Twitter/IG/Facebook @gcccomics and our website https://www.gulfcoastcosmos.com.

Thank you, 

Byron Canady & Sharmane Fury
