Cadillacs and Dinosaurs aka: Xenozoic!

So not to long ago I found a copy of the Cadillacs and Dinosaurs RPG (based on the comic/cartoon created by Mark Schultz) and discovered the comics original name - Xenozoic. Back in 91' a few of us watched the cartoon which wasn't all that great but it was the first time we saw a futuristic Cadi get attacked by a Dinosaur! Who doesn't love that idea! But I digress, as I usually do I went on a quest to find the original comics or trades. As you might guess its not real cost effective to purchase the single issues and I didnt have much luck finding all of the trades.

So I did a bit more digging and found a collected edition that was published last fall by flesk publications       352 pages, 8.5 x 11 and white $39.95. 

"Forced into hiding by a global ecological cataclysm, humans emerge from their underground warrens half a millennium later to discover that the Earth has been totally transformed. All of the familiar flora and fauna are gone, replaced by a radically altered natural order populated by rampaging dinosaurs and strange, new creatures. It takes guts, grim determination, ingenuity and a whole lot of old-fashioned luck just to survive, much less thrive, in this alien wilderness—all qualities that ace mechanic Jack Tenrec, lovely scientist Hannah Dundee and their friends possess in abundance.
But even the worthiest of these hardy souls are hard-pressed to surmount the obstacles presented by their new homeland. And when those trials are further compounded by the underhanded and selfish actions of the cutthroat human scavengers they encounter, even the best equipped and bravest among them might not endure."

I will be doing a review of this book as soon as it arrives so look for it soon.
