COVER DETAILS

X-Men #96 (Marvel, 1975) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages....
Title: Night of the Demon!

Characters: X-Men [Professor X; Cyclops; Storm; Wolverine; Colossus; Nightcrawler]; Kierrok

Pencils: Marie Severin (sketch); Sal Buscema

Inks: Sal Buscema

Letters: Annette Kawecki

Notes: Marvel consistently credits this cover to Marie Severin and Sal Buscema. The original art was signed Sal Buscema (info submitted by mikebo via the GCD Error Tracker). Buscema fully rendered a Severin sketch for the cover of #69, so it seems likely that was the process here. Before the discovery of the original art, we had previously considered several possibilities: Sal Buscema pencils and Al Milgrom inks with the Storm figure penciled and inked by Dave Cockrum per Steve Whitaker; Dave Cockrum pencils with Sal Buscema inks (with alterations on Cyclops, Colossus, and Professor X by Romita) per Nick Caputo; Marvel's Official Index to the X-Men #2 gives the penciller as Marie Severin and the inker as Sal Buscema; Sal Buscema pencils and unknown inks per the original indexer.
