Synopsis: IT’S THE END OF THE ROAD! Continuum Conundrum crashes to a conclusion! Trapped in 2036 with a furious Griff Tannen—and Doc’s only way to reunite with Clara means abandoning Marty to this terrifying future!

Review: Continuing the story from where it left off. Marty and Doc Emmet Brown are indeed caught in an conundrum as they try to escape over zealous police officer Griff Tannen and the authorities of 2036 so they can return to 1986.

The world of 2036 is a much edgier and lawful place than 2015 and it is a lesson learned the hard way for our heroes as they find that just about everyone has some form of tech implant other than them.

The story, which concludes an arc that was started in issue six of the comics comes to a satisfactory conclusion, but also leaves things open for future adventures with Marty, Doc and the gang. Marty’s girlfriend Jennifer had more to do in this particular story than she ever had in the films and proves to be every bit as able as Marty, but with a much more sensible approach.

The story, which was penned in collaboration between ‘Back To The Future’ creator Bob Gale and IDW Comic’s John Barber was fast paced and lots of fun with the odd mini conundrum thrown in to keep things interesting.

The art work and covers throughout this series have been very true to the characters and play out a little like the old ‘Back To The Future’ cartoon series, which to this day I have never seen an episode of.

Marcelo Ferreira did an excellent job of drawing the characters and portraying the frantic action throughout the comics 11 issue run. As to if we’ll see a new story coming next month as yet remains to be seen. But I live in hope.

Having spent pretty much the whole weekend reading all 11 issues of this comic. I am now wanting to have more ‘Back To The Future’ and the odd conundrum or two for Marty and Doc to solve. Which is something that seems to be happening as IDW continues on to the future.

Unfortunately. I now have to go back to the present. But if IDW do a trade of this series. I for one highly recommend it.
