New to comics where should I start

Postby blackwhitesoul » Sat Aug 02, 2014 12:14 pm

Hi I'm from the UK so comics are hard to come by I like reading full story's e.g x-men vs avengers, civilwar!

So what transformer story do you suggest?

The comics are not that hard to find here in the UK, believe me - that's where I get all mine too! :D

For a complete IDW TF list, see below (I would recommend starting from the MTMTE/RID beginning, rather than all the way to Infiltration).

For more or less contained stories, I'd suggest TF: Drift or Last Stand of the Wreckers, or even Stormbringer.

I. The Beginning…
