Review: ‘Back To The Future’: Citizen Brown: #2: Fast Forward

Marty rescued Doc from the certain death back in 1931, but he might have doomed the McFly family in the process! It’ll take 1.21 gigawatts and a little bit of luck to right the time stream and save Marty’s future in “GET TANNEN!” Based on the hit TellTale video game!


This issue moves fast. It’s often hard to keep up. Marty’s actions cause him to start to fade so he and the Doc have to fix it. They stop his Grandpa from getting killed but this results in a future where Hill Valley is now under Tannen family control, again. Man those Tannen’s really know how to send things to hell in a hurry. They work to fix things but end up creating a new timeline in the process

This comic was originally based on a game and it shows as the storytelling keep moving from problem to problem without any real breathing room. Yes it is supposed to be an adaptation and needs to faithful to the original game but it starting to feel like the story would benefit from the characters wandering around for a while talking with Non Playable Characters who keep spitting out repetitive dialogue which is may or may not be helpful.




The art is still good and captures the look and feel of the game and original movie very well. Alan Robinson was able to provide some very visually pleasing actions scenes in this issue. The ghost effect as Marty starts to fade away is replicated spot on.


The issue is fun but it really seems like the story is rushing without taking a break. Hopefully with another new timeline to explore in the next issue there will be some moments where the characters will be able to look around and appreciate what is happening to them.
