Nom de Zeus !
L’éditeur IDW Publishing a engagé Bob Gale, co-scénariste des trois films Retour Vers le Futur et grand amateur de comics, pour superviser le retour de Marty McFly et de “Doc” à l’occasion des 30 ans de la célèbre saga tournée par Robert Zemeckis.
Avec l’aide des scénaristes John Barber (Transformers Vs. G.I. Joe) et Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters), Gale dévoilera les origines de la saga dans une succession d’histoires courtes. Dès octobre, le lecteur assistera, par exemple, à la rencontre entre le jeune Marty et le Docteur Brown avant de découvrir ce que faisait le savant au sein du projet Manhattan pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale.
La partie graphique se partagera, dans un premier temps, entre Brent Schoonover (Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D.) et Dan Schoening.
[quote=“Bob Gale”]At that point I was ambivalent, but I gave them permission to kick the concept around with a couple of writers. They came back to me with some story pitches, but they were overly focused on time travel and didn’t feel like they were really “BTTF.” So that got me thinking about what we could do in a comic series that would fit squarely in the “BTTF Universe” but not feel like an attempt to do “BTTF Part 4” or “imitation BTTF” or “BTT: The Clone Saga.”
The answer was based in the movies, particularly “Part II,” in which we see two sequences that happen “in between” the existing 1955 scenes from “Part 1”: The bit in which Biff gets his cleaned-up car back and then harasses Lorraine as she picks up her dress for the dance; and the conceit that there were two Martys doing different things during the dance.
It was also squarely based in all the Superman comics I’d read growing up. In “Superboy,” we got the equivalent of a “prequel” series. And Mort Weisinger presented all of those “imaginary stories” in the '60s, in which Lex Luthor killed Superman and all kinds of other wonderfully warped stuff. These, by the way, were part of the original inspiration for the 1985-A story in “BTTF Part II.” I also remembered Kurt Busiek’s “Untold Tales of Spider-Man” which filled out things that took place between the early adventures.[/quote]
