Back to the Future comic books published by IDW Publishing
IDW launched its Back to the Future comic series on October 21, 2015, the same date that Doc, Marty and Jennifer visit in Back to the Future Part II. Originally planned to be a four part mini-series, the popularity of the comics meant that IDW decided to continue the series, with a new comic coming out monthly.
The original 4 comics were subtitled Back to the Future: Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines, and consisted of two short stories "filling in" events from before and during the trilogy, such as how Marty met Doc or what happened to Biff after he stole the DeLorean. From Issue 5 the comics told one story per issue. Stories are now mostly spread over several issues.
