Back to the Future: Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines is the first trade paperback of the Back to the Future comic series by IDW Publishing. It contains the first five issues of the series and was released on May 18, 2016.

The plot of the 1890s framing stories continued in the second trade paperback, Back to the Future: Continuum Conundrum.

In 2017, Takarajimasha released the trade paperback in Japan under their Kono Manga ga Sugoi! Comics imprint. The Japanese release was titled Back to the Future: Untold Tales and retained the left-to-right reading style of the original comic.

The Japanese version was organized so that every story was a chapter. For a limited time, the first five chapters were available as a webcomic that was viewable from Takarajimasha's website.
