So, I'm new to the Transformers world, but remember watching the shows as a kid. I've gotten into them again and want to learn everything possible about them. To start off I purchased some comic books from various series (The Transformers, Transformers Armada, Transformers More than Meets the Eye, and Transformers Energon) and I began to wonder what were the first series of Transformers that came out? And if anyone could give me a general timeline of all the comics? I know the ones I have aren't that old, the oldest being from 2002 I believe, but I'd still like to know. Thanks.
