Review: ★★★☆☆

Bob Gale & Company continue the adventures of  Doc Emmett Brown and family. The story picks up from the last issue with the family enjoying the 1939 World’s Fair in Chicago. The idea for Doc is to keep his boys out of trouble and educate them at the same time. However, in this time frame there are more nefarious goings on in the background than he thought about. Doc gets mistaken for an important scientist of the time. The book also addresses interesting health issues of future times. On the art side, the character likenesses continue to be quality work. We can buy that these characters still originate from the Back to the Future films. Overall, this book continues to be consistent and entertaining to read. The book also gives us a look ahead to Einstein’s adventures in the past. You wouldn’t think a dog would be a prince and pauper sort of thing but we will see.
