Time Travelers Mural

Donation protected
This June 1st, after nearly 35 years, Time Travelers: Comics, Cards, and Collectibles is moving to a new, larger home across the street, to 3116 12 Mile Rd, Berkley, MI. Help us commemorate our grand reopening by donating to our public arts project: a store-side mural designed by renowned Detroit artist Kobie Solomon.
The new shop will be located on the corner of 12 Mile Rd and Griffith Ave, and feature even more comics, cards, and collectibles than ever, as well as an immense space for tournaments, game nights, and other events.



What is it?
In working with Kobie Solomon, we’ve created a vision for a mural we believe will bring even more vibrancy to downtown Berkley. This project will represent what makes Time Travelers’ community special and enduring, while creating a source of pride and identity in the neighborhood.

The mural will depict your favorite characters from comics, film, literature, trading card games, and more. The Avengers and X-Men, Batman and Superman, Godzilla and Darth Vader, Wonder Woman and Liliana Vess, Mario and Zelda, Pikachu and the Creature from the Black Lagoon – the list goes on!

You can follow every step of our creative process here or on our social media, with links provided below.


How can I help?
Whether you’re a Time Travelers regular, Berkley native, Kobie Solomon enthusiast, or simply a patron of public art, every dollar counts! Here’s an opportunity to celebrate the fantastic characters, stories, and worlds of our favorite pastimes.

It can’t be said enough, however, that it takes all of us to make it happen. Donations of any size, big or small, are greatly welcomed and appreciated. Below we have a donation tier list as a way of saying thank you to our supporters:
