    Revelations is part four correct? I thought it was supposed to come out BEFORE All Hail Megatron.

    Too many damn comics out, it's hard to follow. I was going to get AHM because Revelations was on hold but apparently now all the spotlights are Revelations? What the hell is going on!!!!

    'Revelation' is the follow up to Devastation. Revelation is made up of 4 Spotlights:

    Spotlight Cyclonus (Rev Part 1)
    Spotlight Hardhead (Rev Part 2)
    Spotlight Doubledealer (Rev Part 3)
    Spotlight Sideswipe (Rev Part 4)

    All other Spotlight issues are regular Spotlights, which fit in various points in the timeline.

    AHM is set 1 year later and is a 12 part series.

    Thanks. So basically wait for the next Spotlight collection and then get AHM. Or would it be released as Revelation?

    Just bothers me that AHM comes out before Revelation yet takes place after.

    Spotlight Volume 3 TPB will contain Blaster, Arcee, Mirage, Grimlock and Wheelie and is out in September.

    It is assumed that Cyclonus, Hardhead, Doubledealer and Sideswipe will be under the Revelation title, and numbered volume 5.

    Spotlights Cyclonus, Hardhead, Sideswipe and Double Dealer are Revelation.

    Furman's Maximum Dinobots series takes place concurrently, but details the story back on Earth with the Dinobots, Sunstreaker/Hunter and Hot Rod against Scorponok.


    As for why AHM was set one year later yet was released first, it's because (depite what IDW might have you believe) AHM was originally a kind of alternate universe storyline. That's why AHM is set a year later - to explain away any continuity errors that naturally occur when a storyline changes writers and to rewrite anything Furman might have previous planned out so it eventually leads to AHM.

    I would think the reason AHM came out before Furman could finish up was because Furman's stuff wasn't selling very well, and they needed an easy-to-read crowd-pleaser, and FAST.
