This comic book I distinctly remember buying at a news stand on Nassau road in Roosevelt NY when I was 8 years old.  I was given a 25 cent allowance and I remember seeing it 2 days before I got my allowance and could not wait to go get it.  I had to walk 2 blocks to get to that news stand and there were many times I would get beat up by neighborhood bullies.  But I wanted this comic book and I braved the 2 blocks risking a beating.  I got my comic and I got home safe.  On that day I learned how to pronounce and spell the word
"Stomach"...see?  Reading comics is educational.  Not entirely sure who drew this cover but I have a feeling GIL KANE may have been the penciller.
Upon staring at the drawing for a long time I have come to the conclusion that this cover was drawn by Herb Trimpe..judging by the fists , feet and knees and inked by Jazzy John Romita judging by the feathering technique used throughout the piece.  Any thoughts?
