Indexer Notes

Based on the TS signature, Michel Faber, via the GCD Errors List (13 June 2006) suggests Herb Trimpe as penciller and Marie Severin as inker. Henry R. Kujawa also thinks the "S" is typical for Marie Severin work (7 August 2006). Nick Caputo notes that both artists often worked in tandem on covers, so this could be a combination of the two (Trimpe breakdowns; Severin finished art, etc).

Indexer Notes

The original cover was drawn by Ross Andru and Sal Buscema, but Marie Severin was called on to greatly revise the cover, retaining most of the background elements, as discovered by Nick Caputo on Comic Art Fans page:

http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=833255&GSub=123109

Also, in the back of the comic there's a page recounting the basic info of Kull. The text reads in part "...the cover...is the combined effort of Ross Andru, Sal Buscema and Marie Severin."
