Back to the Future Comics (GalleyCat)IDW Publishing has announced a new Back to the Future comic series. Universal Pictures released the first Back to the Future movie back in 1985; two sequels followed in 1989 and 1990.

Here’s more from the press release: “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!”

The publisher has recruited three writers for this project: Bob Gale, John Barber, and Erik Burnham. Gale served as one of the screenwriters for the original film. The artists who have been brought on include Brent Schoonover and Dan Schoening. This four-part series will be launched in October.
