IDW Publishing announced todaythat it will be extending its current nostalgia-rich catalog to include the Back To The Future franchise! 2 days ago at San Diego Comic-Con, Tom Wilson aka Biff Tannen crashed their panel with the announcement that IDW was going back to the future this year.
The new series will be subtitled "Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines" and include the movie's original creator/screenwriter Bob Gale!
..."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,” said Gale. “In this series, we’ll finally answer some of those questions, with our focus squarely on the characters everyone loves."
The 4-part series will be hitting your local comic shop in October 2015. Storylines will include Doc and Marty's first encounter in 1982 and also Doc's involvement in the infamous Manhatan Project in 1943. The first issue will feature three different covers (Hitfix has an exclusive look at one) and will be included in IDW's Artist Edition Month for October.
"I can honestly say the enthusiasm surrounding BTTF’s inclusion into our vast library of licensed comics is absolutely palpable here at the IDW offices and amongst the talented creators we’ve recruited to help us bring Bob Gale’s new visions to four-color life—enough excitement to energize a flux-capacitor or two, that’s for sure!” said IDW editor Tom Waltz.
IDW currently catalog includes other '80s properties like Ghostbusters, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Jem, and My Little Pony. Visit the IDW website for complete collection of comics and check out the IDW selections on Amazon which include several free issues.
