    What are the current IDW G1-based stories going on, and under what titles?

    I have TPBs for what I think was referred to as "ongoing", starting with vol 1 "For All Manind" up to vol 6 "Police Action", and I've just pre-ordered vol 7 "Chaos", but I seem to remember reading something about a continuation of the original Marvel comics and possibly another parallel series.

    So... into which series to the TPBs I already have fall, and what are the other current G1 lines? :)

    The orginal Marvel comic story will continue with issue 80.5 (free comic book day) in may and a few months later issue 81 will be released. It is called Regeneration I think or maybe Regeneration 1.

    The ongoings (1 to 7) you have is continuing in the two new ongoings; Transformers More than meets the eye and Transformers Robots in disguise. I guess we will see the tpbs for those in the fall, well the tpb for the first 6 issues of both those series that is.

    There will also be a tpb released for the Autocracy comic (during summer or in the fall I guess), Autocracy is in universe with ongoing, Robots in disguise, More then meets the eye but set long ago in Cybertrons past when Optimus was still Orion Pax.

    So Chaos (vol 7) is the end of the single-line ongoing, then there's two distinct continuations of that in MTMTE and RID, and it's getting a prequel in Autocracy, giving a total of four lines, three of which are directly related, and the other being a completely distinct entity?

    * MTMTE
    * RID
    * Autocracy
    ------------
    * Regeneration 1


    Is that about right?

    Yes.
    However, as Torque mentioned there is a single comic issue called "The Death of Optimus Prime" that isn't collected in the ongoing and isn't part of the two new ongoings either.
    I hope and suspect it will be included in the first tpb to be released of RID or MTMTE.
    If it is included in one of those you are good to go with this information otherwise I guess you need to get that comic issue. It is the setup for the two new ongoings.

    Autocracy is only 10 8-page issues (IIRC, is it 10 issues total?) - so it will be almost done when Regeneration gets launched.

    wouldn't be suprised if we see more digital-only mini comics though- it be really nice if IDW kept these coming. Maybe an Impactor/Guzzle post-wreckers series, or Thundercracker's exodus from Earth. lots of great thing they could explore.
