Wacky Witch was one of Gold Key’s original comic book properties, just like Doctor Solar and Magnus. But she isn’t remembered nearly as well — could that be because those two were members of the only genre capable of sticking in the minds of many comic book fans, superheroes? But Wacky was a
superhero too! She had the magical super power of making practically anything she wanted come true (provided she didn’t mess up the spell), and one of her most time-consuming activities was to protect the realm of King Dingaling from harm (sometimes caused by the error-prone activities of the king himself).

Wacky’s heroic qualities weren’t so well recognized in her first issue (January, 1971, but listed as March in at least one major bibliography). In fact, it was hard for her just to rent a room in which to lay her weary head. Even the musty old spare tower in Dingaling’s castle was unavailable to her, until she showed she could protect his gold from The Midnight Knight and his cheese from Bobin and his Merry Mice (both of them, Nott ‘n’ Ham) of nearby Burwood Forest. After that, the king let her stay rent-free, as long as she was available for emergencies. The fact that it came with a roommate, Batty Bat, didn’t bother her a bit. Before that first issue was over, Wacky’s old pal, Greta Ghost, came to stay with them.
