IDW Publishing has announced that it is set to release a new Back to the Future comic book series subtitled ‘Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines’, which will be steered by screenwriter Bob Gale. Each issue will feature two stories from writers John Barber (Transformers) and Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters).
“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,” states Gale. “In this series, we’ll finally answer some of those questions, with our focus squarely on the characters everyone loves.”
In the first tale of the debut issue, we head back to 1982 and witness the very first meeting between Marty McFly and Doc Brown, before their incredible adventures together began. Then in the second chapter, we head back even farther to 1943 and see how Doc Brown got himself mixed up in the infamous Manhattan Project!
Back to the Future #1 will go on sale on October 21st.
