IDW Publishing Announces ‘Back To The Future’ Comic Series Will Launch October 2015


American comic book publisher IDW Publishing announced on Wednesday that it will launch a Back to the Future comic series, which is set to hit shelves this fall.

The publisher made the announcement by sticking true to the plot premise by revealing that they discovered a guy named Biff who said the freshly-printed Back to the Future comic was the best-selling book of the year after time traveling to San Diego Comic-Con 2016.

Back to the Future creator and screenwriter Bob Gale is on board to write the comics, along with writers John Barber (Transformers) and Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters).

The four-part comic series will include two separate stories with alternative timeliness that will allow fans to uncover what Marty McFly and Doc Brown have been up to since, before and in between the popular films.

"We've subtitled this Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines because for years, fans have asked questions about things that happened before the events of the trilogy, in between the events of the trilogy, or in our alternate realities," Gale said in a press release. "In this series, we'll finally answer some of those questions, with our focus squarely on the characters everyone loves."

In its debut issue, readers will be transported back to 1982 to read about the very first meeting between McFly and Brown. By the second chapter, readers go even more back in time — to 1943 to be exact — where the Doc finds himself in some trouble regarding the historic Manhattan Project.

Each issue will feature rotating artistic trams, which include the talents of Brent Schooner (Batman '66) and Dan Schoening (Ghostbusters).

The first issue will feature three covers by Schoening, Schoonover and Amy Mebberson (My Little Pony).

Gale and the Back to the Future comics team will be at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 9 at 1 p.m. at the IDW booth (#2743).

Back to the Future: Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines will hit comic shops on October 21, 2015.
