This is one of my absolute favorites.
I didnt know about the compendium!
Ive been collecting the trades, awaiting no. 11 right now but its very late on its release.
Worth the wait !
As for the Dome, I really enjoyed it. I luv a good character study. Characters are what make interesting reading, sometimes the horror/fiction genre loses sight of that unfortunately.
The Dome reminded me of the Stand. Fully fleshed out characters, witty and shocking insights, just a good read.
Notice how there was no synopsis or any writing at all on the inside flap cover of the Dome? Ive never seen that, very clever
and only someone like Stephen King could get away with it.
