    Does anyone have a list of what TF books IDW has released, and a timeline of what order to read? With them getting the G.I. Joe license, I wanna give them a chance again. I have like the first year of IDW releases, but after that I dunno what's what.

    Google hasn't helped me, but maybe I'm phrasing it wrong or something.

    Thanks folks!

    This gives a rough outline. The Spotlights are spaced around in between nissues but can be read whenever since they don't specify exact times and the like.

    I only read the trade paperbacks, so those are easy to follow since they're numbered.

    I believe, if memory serves, it's something like this. Ones seperated by spaces are after each other; ones grouped together are at around the same time.

    Megatron: Origin

    Spotlight: Shockwave

    Spotlight: Hot Rod

    Spotlight: Sixshot

    Spotlight: Blaster (a guess)

    Spotlight: Ultra Magnus
    Spotlight: Soundwave

    Infiltration
    Stormbringer
    Spotlight: Nightbeat

    Spotlight: Kup (this is kind of a guess)

    Escalation
    Spotlight: Galvatron
    Spotlight: Mirage (a guess again)

    Spotlight: Ramjet

    Devastation
    Spotlight: Optimus Prime

    Spotlight: Arcee

    Spotlight: Grimlock
    Spotlight: Wheelie

    Revelation

    All Hail Megatron




    People please feel free to correct!

    Pre-War
    Megatron Origin 1-4

    War
    650,000 B.C.
    Spotlight: Shockwave

    1984
    Spotlight: Soundwave
    1988
    Spotlight: Ultra Magnus

    No obvious date
    Spotlight: Sixshot
    Spotlight: Hot Rod

    The present
    Infiltration
    Infiltration 0-4
    Stormbringer 1-4
    Spotlight: Nightbeat
    Infiltration 5-6
    Spotlight: Kup

    Escalation
    Escalation 1-6
    Spotlight: Ramjet (sort of takes place during the events in Brasnya, but Megatron has to recover from his fight with Prime before he can punish Ramjet)

    Spotlight: Optimus Prime
    Spotlight: Galvatron

    Devastation
    Spotlight: Blaster
    Spotlight: Arcee
    Devastation 1-6
    Spotlight: Grimlock

    Maximum Dinobots 1-6 (apparently this takes place immediately after Spotlight: Grimlock, and runs concurrently with Revelations)

    Revelations
    Spotlight: Cyclonus
    Spotlight: Hardhead
    Spotlight: Double Dealer
    Spotlight: Sideswipe

    Spotlight: Mirage (Hound and Mirage are in their Earth bodies, even in the 'real' world, but the comic is confusing enough...)

    All Hail Megatron - 1 year later
    All Hail Megatron 1-12

    ???
    Spotlight: Blurr (I don't know where this goes)
    Spotlight: Wheelie (Wheelie's distress signal is ignored by Prime in Spotlight: Optimus Prime, but the issue itself concludes meta-cycles later, if I recall correctly [1 meta-cycle = 13 Earth months].)
