A Back to the Future comic series is on the way

bttfcomicPart1.jpg

If ever something lent itself perfectly to the world of comic books, it's the colourful, cartoon world of the Back To The Future trilogy. Or Jurassic Park, but that's not on offer.

So it makes perfect sense that tales of time-travelling DeLoreans will be making their way to a brand new comic series, released by IDW Publishing this October.

Even better, original producer Bob Gale is helping to write it, alongside IDW writers John Barber (Transformers) and Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters), with illustrations provided by a rotating team of artists.

The books will fill in the gaps between movies and explore themes further, rather than simply recreating the film trilogy. Each issue will feature two separate adventures, creating an anthology of short stories that take place in the Back To The Future universe. Issue One will look at the origins of Doc Brown and Marty's meeting in one story, with the other covering Doc's involvement in World War II's Manhattan Project. Issue Two will solve the issue of how Doc's house burnt down.

In an interview with CBR News, Gale stated that he was interested in a comic series, "that would fit squarely in the 'BTTF Universe' but not feel like an attempt to do 'BTTF Part 4' or 'imitation BTTF' or 'BTT: The Clone Saga'." He added that the overall concept is "Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines".
