Are you ready to go back to Back to the Future? The beloved 1980s science-fiction trilogy received a modern-day revival of sorts in 2015, when the “future” date that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) traveled to in their DeLorean time machine actually came to pass. For a full year, it was countdown clocks, Marty McFly cosplay, and special screenings of the beloved film. Most importantly, a whole new generation of movie lovers were familiarized with Marty and Doc.
Now, fans can add one more item to their growing collection of Back to the Future paraphernalia. A Back to the Future manga comic book is in the works from One-Punch Man artist, Yuusuke Murata.

When Doc Brown barrels into Marty McFly’s driveway at the end of Back to the Future, not only does he come with concerns about the future, but he has a new piece of technology.
While the original Back to the Future time machine needed plutonium to create a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity necessary to charge the flux capacitor, an upgrade allows Doc Brown to use everyday trash to create the nuclear reaction. That upgrade is called Mr. Fusion, and now you can pick up one of your own to charge your cell phone from your own time machine.
