    I want to start reading the recent G1 TF comics. My library has several volumes, but I'm not sure in which order I should read them. Could someone please help me out? Here's what they have:

    The Transformers: Volume 1, For All Mankind, by Mike Costa

    The Transformers: Volume 2, International Incident, by Mike Costa

    Transformers: The IDW Collection, Volume 2, by Simon Furman

    Transformers: The IDW Collection, Volume 3, by Simon Furman

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 1

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 2

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 3

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 4

    Transformers: Ironhide, by Mike Costa

    Transformers: Escalation

    Transformers: Stormbringer (I've already read this one)

    Boy, there's a lot of crap. Escalation is in the IDW Vol. 2 Collection, BTW. Stormbringer is also in Vol. 2.


    Here's the order:

    Transformers: The IDW Collection, Volume 2, by Simon Furman (excellent)

    Transformers: The IDW Collection, Volume 3, by Simon Furman (excellent)

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 1 (poop)

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 2 (poop)

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 3 (poop)

    Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Volume 4 (except for the story by Roche, poop)

    The Transformers: Volume 1, For All Mankind, by Mike Costa (a big stinking turd)

    Transformers: Ironhide, by Mike Costa (meh)

    The Transformers: Volume 2, International Incident, by Mike Costa (another big stinking turd)


    The good stories they don't have:

    A few Spotlights. Shockwave, Nightbeat, etc;...

    Transformers: Infiltration (takes place after Stormbringer, before Escalation)

    Transformers: Revalations

    Maximum Dinobots (after Devastation)

    Last Stand of the Wreckers (during AHM, but is insanely awesome)

    Your library is cool. There are about a dozen libraries in my city and NONE of them have a single TF comic anywhere. :redface2: 

    Ugh, WHY do libraries get later numbered volumes in a series but not the earlier ones? Infiltration is the obvious place to start...have you checked the catalog to see if they have Infiltration and it's just checked out?
