Spectacular Optical Book One: Kid Power!

We're delighted to have the latest project from Kier-La Janisse, author of the perennial store favourite, House of Psychotic Women (and co-founder of Montreal's sorely-missed Blue Sunshine cinema). Kid Power promises to be a true delight for anyone who appreciates the weirder side of kids' cinema and television, with lovingly-researched essays on the history of ABC's after-school specials and interviews with the brains behind 70s and 80s classics like The Peanut Butter Solution and Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang (the 1978 version, not the more recent TV series).

Kid Power is also the debut in Spectacular Optical's line of small-run, themed anthologies focused on cult film, pop culture, and emphasizing the work of Canadian genre writers. The contributing roster for this volume includes present-day Canadian weirdo undergrounders like Kier-La herself, along with cartoonist Rick Trembles, musician and artist Robert Dayton, and Cinema Sewer proprietor Robon Bougie!  We can't wait to see what Spectacular Optical comes up with next!
