Covers: unretouched Avengers #1

Here is another example of a retouched cover: Jack Kirby's Avengers #1

On the left the US version while on the right the one printed in Italy (again as an internal splash page). Can you spot the difference (apart from the deleted balloons and the recoloring)?

In the US cover the right side of Thor's mantle was shortened

The original cover has been published in the reprint series Marvel Masterworks and in other places

Interestingly the Ad published in other comics books of that period used the original cover
