Back to the Future Manga from creator of One-Punch Man

For the past three decades, there’s never been a comic book adaptation of the Back to the Future trilogy, but that’s going to change later this year thanks to One-Punch Man artist, Yuusuke Murata. Back to the Future co-writer Bob Gale will be overseeing Murata’s upcoming manga adaptation of the film, which will include new story material that didn’t make the theatrical cut.
According to Anime News Network, Murata announced the Back to the Future manga at an event in Tokyo for Ready Player One. The new adaptation will be called BTTF, and it will be serialized online at Kono Manga’s site, with collected editions to follow in Japan.

Although the initial report indicated that only the first Back to the Future movie would be adapted, the accompanying illustration clearly features characters and details from all three films. That includes Doc Brown’s future wife, Clara, and Marty McFly’s famous hoverboard. If Back to the Future II and III are also included, this would also be the first comic adaptations of those films as well.
IDW is currently the North American publisher for the Back to the Future comics that take place before, after, and during the trilogy, as well the adaptation of Telltale’s video game. Gale is also heavily involved with those comics as a writer and producer, so that may give IDW the edge if the publisher decides to bring the BTTF manga to this country. But if not, we’d be shocked if another manga publisher didn’t pick up the rights.
