Wow! From the pages of a 1974 issue of AMAZING WORLD OF DC COMICS, we see this amazing pencilled piece of pandemonium, the unused cover for LOIS LANE #96! Both the published and initial versions were pencilled by Curt Swan (with Murphy Anderson inks on the finished art)! Curt was the long-time Superman artist at DC for more than three decades!

gimmick-ladden published version, with Murphy Anderson inks! Looks like the
editors thought the Man of Steel needed to be front-and-center in order to
attract maximum reader (and buyer) interest! Note how this cover theme was
prepared in reaction to the then-popular ROSEMARY'S BABY
