He was the Big Bad of the Back to the Future trilogy, and now Biff Tannen is finally getting his own story told.

IDW has been running a comic series chronicling the untold stories surrounding the hit film trilogy, and the new spinoff Biff to the Future is set to focus on Biff's journey ... most of which happened off-screen.

Biff to the Future will chronicle the story of what happened when Biff commandeered the DeLorean and took that copy of Grays Sports Almanac to his younger self. It'll track the birth of the terrifying alt-future where Biff is the most powerful man in Hill Valley and all the other trouble he creates in the timestream.

Admittedly, it's not easy finding fresh stories to tell in this universe, but Biff's saga is certainly a story that hasn't really been mined already in the films (beyond just being the main source of antagonism). The series will be handled by Back to the Future co-creator Bob Gale and Derek Fridolfs (Batman), with art by Alan Robinson (BTTF: Citizen Brown).
