With 'Back to the Future' celebrating it's 30th anniversary this year and yet continuing to garner more fans, it's no surprise that Universal Studios is keen to keep the story alive, even if Director Robert Zemeckis won't allow a remake or sequel until he passes away. So its perhaps fitting that the story will be extended in comic book form, with this week's announcement by IDW.


According to io9, the series will act as a prequel to the events of the first film, depicting how Marty first met Doc Brown and then filling in further story line gaps between the three films. Headed up by writers John Barber and Erik Burnham 'Back to the Future' #1 will hit newsstands in October to coincide with the release of a new 30th anniversary 4 disc Blu-ray boxset, which will include new bonus features.
