A new store dedicated to comics and records should land in the Cedars district this fall.
Black Cat Records N Comics, a collaborative effort between Megan Daniel and Guy Steele, will open a storefront at 971 Botham Jean Blvd., Dallas CultureMap reported.
Located near Interstate 30, the store will occupy empty space for over 20 years.
Comic book lovers will be able to choose from new and popular anime and manga comics and works from underground and independent publishers. The music selection will include both new and used vinyl records from niche genres such as exoticism, Polynesia, Japanese pop and soundtracks.
âThe store will be a unique mix,â Steele told CultureMap. âWe’ll have records and comics, with a wide selection for listeners and readers of all ages, but some with a special focus. “
Black Cat plans to be more than just a place for customers to browse records and comics. The store will also offer weekly playlists and support local talent with live events featuring bands, DJs and podcasts.
The store has faced setbacks related to the pandemic but hopes to open soon.
âThe store has been in construction since before COVID-19,â Steele said. âWe know we’ll be a destination for the people of Dallas, but we’re also close to the convention center, the Omni Dallas hotel, and there aren’t a lot of stores in that area. We hope we will be a fun place to visit.
