The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Sam McGee VERSUS Buck

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Nancy Drew VERSUS Sam McGee), with a final score of 9-0 was Sam McGee.

The first shut out we've had in a very long time. Poor Nancy. No one was impressed sufficiently by her legacy I suppose? 80 million copies of her books sold, 45 languages, a TV series, computer games... Then, with so many people tweaking her image and personality, it's hard to say definitively that you're a fan. Compare these two covers:

I wonder if die hard Nancy Drew fans have their favourite ghost writers.

But the mystery of the better character has been solved, and it's Sam McGee. When he competes against Nancy Drew that is. But let's see how he does against Buck.

Vote in the comment section below before November 23rd: Who is the better character?

I voted for Nancy. Guess it did't go through. Not that it would have made a difference. Oh well.

I have to go with Buck. I was very impressed with him when I read TCOTW a few years ago.
