In this episode, it is discovered that someone has stolen, recreated and sold several copies of an extremely rare comic book. Christopher Lloyd plays the original creator of the comic book, who no longer benefits from his past creations. Having thought that his comics wouldn't be worth much in the future, he either lost or sold his entire collection and regrets it now that he and his wife live on very little. His young friend and fellow comics artist, played by Ben Feldman, publicly humiliates the rich man who owned the original before it was stolen. Written by

Fittingly (for the comic book theme of the episode), two of this episode's guest stars are best-known for their participation in very popular science fiction franchises: Wil Wheaton (Miles Sklar) played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation
(1987), and Christopher Lloyd (Ross Moore) played Emmett "Doc" Brown in all three Back to the Future
(1985) movies. See more
