MARVEL CLASSICS COMICS #33: THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER (1978)
Marvel Comics
UPDATE:
From George Perez: The only time I did cover layouts for another artist was for Chris Marrinan on Wonder Woman. The signature on the “Prince and the Pauper” piece appears to be a forgery.

George Perez, John Romita Jr., and Tony DeZuniga Marvel Classics Comics #33 - The Prince and the Pauper Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1978).

Here is an interesting cover from the Marvel Classics Comics adaptation of The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain. With pencils credited to John Romita Jr., we believe he worked from layouts by George Perez, who actually signed the cover in the UPC box and at the bottom. Tony DeZuniga provided the inks for this swashbuckling action shot. Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The toned board has header, logo, and text stat paste-ups, with production and residue staining, and handling wear. In Very Good condition.
