Review: ★★★☆☆

If you haven’t guessed, this latest series from the mind of Bob Gale focuses on Doc Brown and his future family of Clara, Jules, Verne, and Einstien. Our adventure begins with them in a future type setting where they could possibly not disrupt the time stream. Things being things and boys being boys, stuff occurs to create tons of fun for our travelers. The story has a solid resolve and we get to see where the comic interacts with the movies. The thing that makes this book work really well is that I can hear the character’s voices in my head as I read the story. Megan Levens artwork works well with the story and she does well with creating the likenesses of the characters. It’s an excellent read and Gale and company do a fantastic job of keeping the Back to the Future family alive and kicking. This series should prove to be good purchase and nice addition to any other BTTF books you have in your library.
