IDW Comics releases a graphic novel of Back to the Future, which will explain about Marty’s life.

The series follows the aftermath of the three films, however, there’s something that bothers Marty about the time when he went time-traveling with Doc Brown. There are few mysteries that are uncovered throughout the series.

As soon as Marty questions himself about the past, he recalls everything that he has done since he went time-traveling in 1955. He almost felt guilty from all of the trouble he went through in order to save Doc just before the terrorists shot him to death. Then a few days later during his high school life, Marty met Professor Marcus Irving and helped him find Doc Brown’s whereabouts, for instance, he showed Marty his own time-traveling machine out of a Yugo car. He also invented some humanoid robot versions of Marty and Doc Brown from time. However, time turned out really messed up because Professor Irving wanted to get revenge on Doc Brown for reasons. But before that, he used Marty to find Doc Brown, but then Marty was tricked the whole time because somehow the Marties wanted the present Marty to confess the truth about what he had done the whole time. Aside from that, in the beginning of the comic, Marty had some flashbacks from him and his friend/rival Doug, or Needles. Needles became a troublemaker ever since his parents got divorced twice, but as soon he met Marty, Needles had done nothing but trouble to him because he thinks that he did something to him. So what happens next to Needles when he really grows up to be?

To be honest, Marty seemed to feel guilty from all the trouble that he made in time-traveling. He even asked Jennifer about what he really is, the present Marty? Or the time-traveler Marty? These are the questions that any other Back to the Future fan would ever hear to answer. In fact, the whole reason that Marty changed the future from 1955 to the present because Hill Valley was a mess and his parents had a complicated life before Marty when to the past to fix things. And Needles, he is more like Biff because despite that Needles called him a chicken, that was actually McFly’s weakness for trying to provoke him. For some reason, this graphic novel describes the aftermath of the three Back to the Future films, because he and Doc Brown had spent each other going on adventures through time. Marty, however, thought about himself that whether if he existed in the present, but his biggest fear is that one day, he will disappear from existence. I would recommend to anyone to read this graphic novel so anyone can follow the whole story.
