The Scottish Sun’s poll to find out who is the best British comics character ever has closed and the results posted, and Dennis the Menace has come out top! Dennis, alongside his trusty sidekick Gnasher, collected 31% of the votes to take the number 1 spot, followed by the Bash Street Kids in second place with 15% of the votes and Oor Wullie in third, with 14%.
There were ten characters you could vote for in the poll, and all of them were D.C Thomson’s characters except for the Eagle’s Dan Dare.
