Cover Details - "In the Name of Turalla!"

Characters Sub-Mariner; Spider-Man; Turalla
Genre superhero
Pencils Sal Buscema?; Gene Colan?
Inks Frank Giacoia? (alterations by John Romita?)
Notes Cover art suggestions 2006 by Nick Caputo, who adds: "This is a mixed bag cover and I'm not certain of the Sal B. credit. I do see Giacoia here, probably inking, but the rest appears to be a mixture. Romita had a hand in altering figures, particularly the villain, but it's possible Colan may have pencilled the cover (the spidey figure and the villain, particularly the legs, have some Colan flourishes). The more I look at it the more I doubt Sal B. I might note Colan pencils? Giacoia inks, alterations by Romita."
