|Back to the Future Annual|
David Bishop, Randall D. Larson and John Freeman
Marvel Comics, Ltd.
Although an annual would usually be published once a year for the forthcoming Christmas market (appearing in book stores around August/September), this was the only edition. The cover price was £4.25.
The cover photograph was a publicity shot of Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Freddie posing with the DeLorean time machine on the set of 2015 Hill Valley, showing the Courthouse with its large, futuristic-looking darkened windows in the background.
The book included synopses of each film in the trilogy, detailed descriptions of the Courthouse Square from each era, behind-the-scenes information, actor profiles, photographs, and more.
The book was also published in a paperback edition, simply titled Back to the Future, priced at £2.99. The paperback edition had an additional page at the front of the book, showing a black and white photo of Doc and Marty in 1885, but the contents were otherwise identical to the original Back to the Future Annual.
