Whizzer and Chips had a long tradition of sending characters from the Chips section into Whizzer and vice versa. These cross-comic forays were known as 'raids'. In this series of posts I'm chronicling the raids involving the ex-Cheeky Weekly characters who made the transition into Whizzer and Chips, all of whom were allocated to the Chips section. For the purposes of this series, although this particular manifestation of the toothy funster didn't directly descend from Cheeky Weekly, I'm including Cheeky's Krazy Gang appearances as those of an 'ex-Cheeky Weekly character'.
Two weeks after Mustapha Million infiltrated Chips' Animalad strip, the loaded lad was targeted in a revenge raid. But can you spot the sneaky interloper? Scroll down for the reveal...

Unusually, the raider wasn't depicted on Sid's Whizz-kids page, possibly because space was tight due to the debut of Glow Boy, a character inspired by the long-running Ready Brek TV advertising campaigns that each year heralded the approaching winter months.
By this stage Mustapha had perpetrated and suffered 3 raids, and the overall tally at this point was Whizz-kid raiders 9, with 6 raids carried out by ex-Cheeky Weekly characters.
