Back to the Future #18: Stowaway to the Future was the eighteenth issue of the Back to the Future comic series by IDW Publishing. It picks the story up from both the 1893 storyline, as last seen in Back to the Future: Continuum Conundrum, and the 1986 storyline, as last seen in Back to the Future: Who Is Marty McFly?

It tells the story of Doc Brown recounting a story to his new colleague, Marcus Irving, about a time that his youngest son Verne, stowed away in the second DeLorean time machine when Doc traveled to 2017 to pick up an anniversary gift for Clara.

Publisher Summary

TWO SECONDS! Doc Brown faces the gravest danger he's ever encountered -- he forgot his anniversary! So, he tells Clara he'll be back in two seconds and cranks up the flux capacitor -- after all, what could go wrong? Unfortunately for Doc...everything.


  • When Doc begins to tell Marcus the story, the date at the top left corner gives the year as 11893, instead of 1893.
