The Great Wednesday Compare- FINALE


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Anne Shirley VERSUS Marilla Cuthbert), with a final score of 8-1 was Marilla Cuthbert.

This is bizarre! I have to say, I did not predict that at all. The winner of the Great Wednesday Compare #7, Marilla Cuthbert, beat the winner of the Great Wednesday Compare #8, Anne Shirley, and by a landslide. That both these women ended up on top in the first place is strange enough, but Mr. Miyagi beating the Karate Kid? I didn't see that coming.

But I'm glad the final outcome still held a surprise for me. It's a good note to go out on. Yes, I'm retiring the Great Wednesday Compares. At least for now. I've done books, I've done bookish things, and I've done characters and I think I'm done. It's been a lot of fun and I love that so many people played along. Thank you so much. In the meantime, stay tuned for my next weekly feature: drawing Victorian authors in inappropriate poses! No? How about recipes based on the Earth's Children series? Maybe not. Timothy Findley impersonations? I've got nothing.

How am I suppose to be able to tell it's Wednesday now? Use an actual calender? Boo. ;)

Though I was only an occasional participant, I did enjoy The Great Wednesday Compare. Thanks for them all.

I bet Marilla beats everything - any book, any taker, ever.

thanks for all the fun John. I know it was a lot of work, but it was appreciated.
