Throughout the subscription build of their 1:8 scale Back to the Future DeLorean model, Eaglemoss offers five ‘Special Issues’. These issues are automatically sent, and are billed in addition to the monthly subscription. If you do not wish to receive them, you must notify Eaglemoss in advance via phone at (800) 261-6898 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first of these Special Issues is this collection of graphic novels titled Back to the Future: Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines. It costs $24.95 USD and is the first volume (issues 1-5) of the IDW Back to the Future Comic Series by Bob Gale, John Barber, and Erik Burnham. Eaglemoss describes it as such:
“Back To The Future co-creator/co-screenwriter Bob Gale returns with all new tales from the twisting and turning timeline that made Back To The Future a, well…. TIMELESS pop-culture phenomenon!
From the Old West forward to the 1980s, from the 21st Century back to the Jurassic Period… and every time in between… Doc, Marty, along with their friends and enemies, embark on time-space continuum adventures of epic proportions!”
The Eaglemoss version is a 64-page full color hard cover book. Inside, there are tales of the adventures of Doc and Marty outside the movies such as: how Doc and Marty met, Doc’s involvement with The Manhattan Project, Biff’s trips in time, Doc’s other inventions, and more. It was a fun read and gave a lot of backstory to many of the characters in the Back to the Future universe.
