About Us

The Man Behind the Mask

See that goofy kid over there? That's me, Don, 35 years ago when the old Eastbrook Mall used to hold comic conventions. 
 
Comics have always been a part of my life: from buying my first comic (Batman #254) to bringing home Scooby-Doo comics for my kids. I'm beyond thrilled to open this store as a fulfillment of a far-off dream. 

The most enjoyable thing about starting this store for me has been meeting and talking with so many other comic lovers! 

The Store Behind the Signal

Founded by Don Myers of Grand Rapids, Michigan, The Comic Signal is a home for comic book lovers and enthusiasts. We are especially proud of the over 40,000 comics we have, ranging from the 1940's to present. We also have a dedicated Kids' Corner with age-appropriate comics and graphic novels as we strongly believe comics are a great way to not only help kids learn to read, but also to help kids love to read!

 

We also are a big gaming family, so we have a wide selection of board games and card games, many of which we teach on our family-friendly game nights. We pride ourselves on our knowledge, friendliness, and commitment to creating community. This truly is a family business - you'll often see my wife and kids helping out around the store.
