This is a blatant rip-off of an original by Bob Clarke from '69. Although a lot of covers from the US edition were used as is for the Swedish edition, I don't know why Anders Ferm copied this one as closely as he did. The Swedish editors probably saw that it would be overall easier to copy it and tweak it for the Swedish market. Maybe because the fonts used were more or less a one off, especially created for that cover. It may also have been a problem getting a copy of the original art work, as there are pretty much two decades between Clarke's and Ferm's versions. Ferm may have done the main picture, but I can also see the hand of Alf Woxnerud in the text at the bottom.
