So, this past (last) semester of mine of college, I had the wonderful experience of being an intern for Marvel Comics! During my time there, I got to thinking a lot about my favorite comic books, and now I want to know: what are your favorite Transformers comics? Here are mine, in no particular order:

Transformers: Beast Wars; the Gathering
Transformers: Cybertron; Balancing Act
Transformers: Timelines; Shattered Glass
G.I. Joe Vs. The Transformers III The Art of War
The Transformers (the original Marvel Comics series)

So what about you? What are your favorite TF Comics?

Last Stand of the Wreckers is God Tier.

I'm actually kinda lacking severely in the TF comic department. There's a whole lot that I've never read. :oops:

I've read several TF manga though (my favorite being the 4-part Stargate Battles series).

From what I can remember, these are the only TF comics I've ever actually read:
  • Critical Mass - Ground Zero (via BotCon.com scans)
  • Reaching the Omega Point - Terminus (via BotCon.com scans)
  • The Wreckers issues 1-2 (via BotCon.com scans)
  • Primeval Dawn Part 1 (via BotCon.com scans)
  • The four Armada toy pack-in comics
  • The first of the four Energon toy pack-in comics
  • Shattered Expectations (via TFCC scans)
  • The Coming Storm Part 1 (via TFCC scans)
  • Two pages of The Coming Storm Part 2 (via TFCC scans)
  • Lil Formers
  • Transformers Movie Prequel
  • Transformers Movie Adaptation
  • Planetfall and Interlude
  • The Reign of Starscream issues 1-3
  • Transformers Animated: The Arrival TPB
  • Beast Wars Omnibus (The Gathering, The Ascending, Sourcebook)

That may seem like a lot, but it's not. There's so much more than that in existence. ;)

Actually, The Linkage is a manga (which is still technically a comic, but many like to differentiate the two :ugeek:). But yeah, I guess it would count in this case (seeing as it's the only TF comic - manga or not - that you've read ;)).

I actually REALLY liked Dreamwave's Transformers: Energon. I wish IDW had followed in their footsteps a little bit more, as I liked how Dreamwave took the storylines of Armada and Energon and made them SO MUCH BETTER. I wanted to see a similar event with Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo. But, alas, we got Beast Wars: The Ascending instead... T_T

I really liked Reign of Starscream. A lot.

Haven't read Last Stand, although I plan on it when the TPB comes out.

seeing as how the action figures came out you can buy universe classics prowl and then buy spotlight:prowl

My list has been updated to include such comics as Transformers Animated: The Arrival TPB, Beast Wars Omnibus (The Gathering, The Ascending, Sourcebook), and one that I had forgotten to list back when I first made the list: Shattered Expectations.
