Bernie in The Beano!
Inside the above issue of Whizzer and Chips, a character called Bernie Banks, star of the strip Memory Banks, made one of my all time favourite crossovers! Illustrated by Mark Bennington, Bernie not only crossed over into two other Fleetway comics, but also managed to slip into a D.C Thomson title! This wasn't the only time Whizzer and Chips, or Fleetway in general, mocked D.C Thomson, with the most famous on the back cover of the final Buster!
There were a lot of fun crossovers in the history of British comics, but so far this one is my firm favourite!
