    I heard there is a comic of short story called "Reaching the Omega Point" or "The Omega Point". Or something.

    What is it about? Is is a comic, or a story, or both? And if both, which order are they read in?

    So those should be read in the order they're listed on the wiki site? And thanks. :)

    Co-rrect! These were preceded in 1997 by Ground Zero, which wasn't labelled as part of the "Omega Point" story, but which was part of the same "continuity" those stories all shared.

    Hmm.... all these Botcon/Collector Club comics and prose stories are confusing the hell out of me. I don't know which ones go which. lol

    Is there a section on the tfwiki that straightens all of them out?

    Here's a list of everything that was published when 3H Enterprises ran BotCon, consisting of the "Omega Point" storyline and followed by the unfinished "Wreckers" and "Universe" comics. This all runs in a pretty straightforward one-after-the-other year-on-year order, with "Wreckers" and "Universe" being published concurrently before 3H lost the license.

    This article has a list at the top of the various six-part stories published in the bi-monthly Collectors Club magazine by Fun Publications, who took the licence up after 3H lost it. A vague ending for the "Universe" comic storyline was touched upon in the second year.

    And this one here is a list of all the other fiction Fun Pub has released, under the "Timelines" banner, including all the comics and script readings from BotCon and the numerous prose stories available only online. Most of these are themed around the worlds and eras spotlighted in the BotCon or Club comics, but a finale for the "Wreckers" comic is also among the stories released.

    Sweet. Thanks for the help. Those links should make everything a lot easier to keep straight.
