An article that provides a comprehensive history of this High King, which is fully referenced. The development of the character is fully sketched out, as is its etymology and genealogy. It meets all ten of the criteria listed above. --{{User:Mith/sig}} 22:11, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

A thorough article which covers the plot, characters, publication history and critical reception to the book. The article is fully referenced, and meets all ten of the criteria listed above. --{{User:Mith/sig}} 22:11, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
 
 
* '''Agree'''. Very well-written and amusing; also it would be nice to feature something not from Arda for a bit. —{{User:Holdwine Meriadoc/sig}}
 
 
* '''Agree'''. It required a lot of work and contains many references and is probably not known by many fans of Tolkien. If I have to decide between Gurthang and Mr. Bloss, I vote for Mr. Bliss, because it required more work and research to write this article. Gurthang only has the Silmarillion as a reference with only one more reference for the etymology and one more reference for other versions of the legendarium. --[[User:Akhorahil|Akhorahil]] 07:23, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
