    You've missed out "Drift", which came out around the time of "International Incident" (though is a flashback to the past, pre-AHM, detailing the titular character).

    Spotlight Prowl has not yet been released in TPB.

    "Revenge of the Decepticons" is out in the next month or so, with "Heart of Darkness" following in September.

    thank you again!

    are those ("Revenge of the Decepticons", "Heart of Darkness") from the ongoing title?

    up to what number of the ongoing has been captured in tpb?

    "For All Mankind" and "International Incident" are ongoing issues #1-12.

    "Revenge of the Decepticons" includes issues #13-18.

    "Heart of Darkness" (listed as vol 4 of ongoing) actually contains the mini-series "Heart of Darkness" #1-4. The reason it's been folded into the "ongoing" TPBs is the impact it has on the main series, and the fact they're phasing mini-series out for now.

    Thanks for bumping this list as I am currently in the process of reading the IDW run.

    As far as I can tell all that needs to be added to the list after Heart of Darkness is the TPB Chaos and Chaos Theory which have not been released yet.

    I've read Infiltration, Stormbringer, Escalation, and currently am on Devastation. My plan is to read the Spotlight volumes afterward to use as filler towards the encompassing story. I've wanted to read the IDW continuity for the longest time. When the new comics hit stores in January I'm going to be ready!

    I noticed that as well and I believe it's just a mistake. I followed late in the ongoing series and it's just Chaos Theory and Chaos. I don't know what "volume 6" could be short of another Spotlight?
