BALTIMORE — Environmental apocalypse and Cadillacs that run on dinosaur guano are fresh fodder for comic book creators in search of new readers.

"They're not satisfied just with Superman beating the heck out of a villain," said Greg Loescher, who publishes the Comics Buyers Guide, an industry newspaper.

Mark Schultz's "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs" depicts a world after an environmental catastrophe caused by depletion of the ozone layer. Dinosaurs have re-emerged, and one of the few surviving inventions of man are vintage Cadillacs. "They now have new engines that run on dinosaur guano," Schultz said.
