Whenever I drive around Erie, I look for buildings in which I can see The GeekERIE finding a home and settling in for a good run of helping kids and adults learn to love reading and writing. Of course, all I have to barter for space with are my internal organs, and -for now!- I’d like to hold onto those.
Still, when I saw the old AKD Printing building -a company I know nothing about and, really, a building I can’t for the life of me remember noticing before- I felt that there was something perfect about taking over a space that was once a printer’s and that might one day print comic books.
Also, it looks haunted, which is a bonus.
I’ve written the owner and asked for an opportunity to go inside and take pictures. If he says yes, expect an update!
