    Ok, I've recently started collecting the idw comics and wanted to know if this is a good basic order for reading the trades

    Megatron origin
    War within vol 1 (yes I know it's dw but it seems to fit well with megatron origin, if there are any specific discontinuities between the two besides character designs please let me know)
    Infiltration
    Spotlight vol 1
    Stormbringer
    Spotlight vol 2
    Escalation
    Spotlight vol 3
    Devastation
    Spotlight vol 4
    Drift mini
    Last stand of the wreckers
    All hail megatron vol 1-4
    Ongoing vol 1
    Bumble mini
    Heart of darkness
    Ongoing vol 2
    Ironhine mini
    Infestation

    Did I miss anything? And is that a good order to read them in?

    Maximum Dinobots inbetween Spotlight Vol. 4 and Drift Mini. Also, LSOTW is set after All Hail Megatron.

    Forgot about that one haha it's actually one I've read already, got them completely out of order so I'm trying to make sense of it now. I know there's also some sort of avengers crossover, is that canon? And is it even any good?

    Pass on the Avengers story.
    Its unremarkable.

    Ok thanks for the correction on lsotw and for the info on avengers. So I guess nothing important happens in that one

    Avengers has zero impact and, despite other claims, isn't really part of the continuity.

    I wouldn't include "War Within" - it's contradicted in other stories and isn't part of the same continuity.

    don't forget Beast Wars (since it takes place in both the past and the future)
