I no Dinobot fan but MD is really interesting for only 3 issues. To anyone who knows is Maximum Dinobots and All Hail Megatron in the same continuity as each other and Megatron Origins or is it TBD?

Yes, they are all in continuity as of right now. MD takes place before AHM.






We all know Shockwave is going to find a way to get that bomb out of his head.

Can't wait for the TPB (since that's when I'll read it). Loved the Cybertronian alt modes in the preview for #1 back around Christmas and looking forward to seeing Furman continue to tell stories in the universe he's built.

I thought AHM was a 12 issue stand alone, "What If...?" series.
The events in MD seem to be congruent with the "Infiltration" thru "Devastation" series which is in continuity with the Megatron:Origins and several of the Spotlight issues.
I hope someone can help me confirm or deny 'cause I don't have the time to go through all of those back issues and my headache isn't going to allow me to focus on the print anyway. :P

According to IDW Max Dino's and AHM are both in full continuity with all the "-tion" books, Stormbringer and Megatron Origins.

Anybody else find their local comic shops didn't get any of the IDW they were supposed to this week? I was quite frustrated.

Thanks for getting my curiosity up. I finally pulled out my collection and sure enough, I had missed the little box at the bottom on AHM#1 where it said "One year later". I appreciate being pointed back in the right direction. :grin:

According to the IDW forums, one of the three Diamond distributors did not get their shipment in time to get them out this week.

Must have been the center that delivers to the North East.

My shop said they will be getting the book in next week. :-(

Yeah me too. I got a little rude with the clerk, because I know that they were supposed to come out. I had to apologize, and eat crow... Damn Diamond... I mean I can wait, it was just inconvenient and caused me to take issue with a person who did not need it taken with them.

I'm still waiting for Max Dinos #2 and Ghost Busters the other side #3 and #4 :MAD:
I still get AHM which makes me even more mad as I hate that and want to read the other stuff. I am so done with this shit hole of a comic publisher.

I hated to quote all that, but it is relevant. There was a problem with distributing Max Dino's 2 and that was due to the issue being sold out and individual comic book stores not pre-ordering and when they did order some found their order not filled. There is almost enough orders to do a second printing of MD2 according to the IDW forums.

I would blame possibly a late trucker who may or may not be employed by Diamond for the most recent problem.

Anyway, with the treatment of the Revelations series and the subsequent need for a Patch called Coda (Why couldn't have AHM just been a different series altogher), I am totally done with IDW at the end of Max Dino's. I expected Max Dinos to be nice and paced like Infiltration, but it turns out to be a condensed wrap up just like the 4 part revelation/expansion was and is not what I want to read.

I think AHM is just awful.

Yea, I agree that it kinda sucks that Max Dinos is a wrap-up. But at least the art is really good! :D

And I also agree with you Energon about AHM. Coda might as well be called AHM Retcon.

Nick Roches art is great and I appreciate that Simon was trying to finish up a few loose ends for us and not leave us hanging. It is IDW that I blame for him having to do that.

Oh well, I have already moved on to other stuff.

The problem with comic the excuse with the comic book stores not ordering in time is, my comic book store ordered that issue 2 months before it was released like every import comic.
