    I'm thinking about purchasing the adaptations in the novel and comic book format but I totally lost track of what comes first and the order.



    So right now this is what I have:

    Transformers - Ghosts of Yesterday (novel)
    Transformers - Movie Prequel (comic)

    And then the first Transformers movie comes out

    After that should be:

    Reign of Starscream (comic)



    So then what comes after that? I'd like to get them all including if there are any other comics that come after DOTM if at all.

    Ok anyone else? Like with an actual list of the publications in order with relation to the movie instead of a reading an essay?

    Thanks for the link, and I'm sure its an interesting read but I was looking to make a shopping list of things to read, not have a website spoil everything that happens in the books I'm about to buy.

    Defiance (2009) and Foundation (2011) are set before the Movie Prequel and expound upon the Cybertron backstory per the backstory elements introduced with each film. You ought to read the former before the latter. The Sector 7 comic also expands on the Movie Prequel.

    Alliance is set between TF1 and Reign of Starscream, while Nefarious and Rising Storm are set between ROTF and DOTM. The Veiled Threat (a novel) is also set between TF1 and ROTF.

    Tales of the Fallen is an anthology, I recommend you read it before Nefarious as Ravage's issue ties into it.

    Convergence is a short story by John Barber that ties up the last of the plot holes in the movieverse, it's currently only avaliable in the individual issues of DOTM's comic adaptation.
