This graphic novel explores and expands the world featured in the 1980s classic sci-fi movies

Michael Robert “Bob” Gale is an American screenwriter, producer and film director. He famously co-wrote the science fiction film Back to the Future, with writing partner Robert Zemeckis, and the screenplays for the film’s two sequels. Gale also co-produced all three films, served as associate producer on the 1991 animated TV series, and co-writes the comics from IDW Publishing. 

Gale has also written other comics, including Marvel Comics’ Ant-Man’s Big Christmas and DC Comics’ Batman. In 2001, Gale had a short run on Marvel’s Daredevil, writing issues #20-25 of Volume 2. Working with artists Phil Winslade and David Ross, they created the story arc “Playing to the Camera.” In 2008 Gale worked as one of the writers among the rotating writer/artist teams on The Amazing Spider-Man, which at the time was published three times a month.

John Barber is a former Marvel and IDW Publishing editor now focused on writing comics. Credits include: Optimus Prime, Doctor Strange/Punisher, Ultimate Spider-Man Infinite Comics, Revolutionaries, Back to the Future, and Action Man comics!
