The Bully Gets His Day In ‘Biff To The Future’ #1 [Exclusive Preview]

Layout 1

In Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly visits a dystopian timeline where Biff Tannen has taken over Hill Valley, murdered Marty's dad, and married his mom. This turns out to be because his older self in 2015 stole the DeLorean to give his younger self in 1955 a Sports Almanac that enabled him to become wealthy by gambling. But when you think about it, it would take more than results of sporting events for a less-than-brilliant teenage bully to become a wealthy corporate titan.

Biff to the Future, a new six-issue miniseries from IDW, tells that story. Beginning with young Biff receiving the almanac, it follows him as he realizes just what he has and how to use it, and then start accumulating money and power.

I don't know about you, but I did not wake up this morning expecting to see the phrase, "Jughead relaunch from the writer of Sex Criminals." And yet, here we are.

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly.

Best Abs Ever (This Week): An Appreciation Of Male Comic Book Eye Candy

Eden Fesi-Stefano Caselli-hed

In the process of writing my article about muscles vs curves, and how the big dudes of superhero comics typically fail to represent the tastes of most androphile women, I gathered a collection of images and recommended artists from my correspondents that illustrate the sort of art they'd love to see more of -- but which there's sadly very little of compared to all the T&A fan-service targeted at straight men.

I had far too many recommendations to put in the article, so I've compiled the collection (and a few personal favorites) into a very special one-off post. The collection includes pin-ups, fan art, sketches, and some traditional superhero art from artists who aren't afraid to put a little male eye candy in their work!
