House of Mystery #273 (October 1979)

With “My Mother, the Witch,” I got the chance to work with one of my all-time favorite comic book artists—Ramona Fradon. Raise your hand if you remember her magnificent run on Metamorpho?

The five-page story was about a boy who was failing science class because he was following in his mother’s magical footsteps rather than paying attention to he teacher’s formulas. (Hint: It doesn’t end well for the teacher.)
