Thor Redrawn?

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that the Thor figure on this cover was redrawn by an artist other than Kirby before it was inked. It certainly doesn't look like a Kirby figure to me. Maybe Romita or Marie Severin? Very hard to tell, as that's quite an uncharacteristically heavy ink job by Colletta. Almost looks as though someone like Syd Shores went over it. Any ideas, Tom? I'm stumped on this one.

Hi John. It looks like Romita to me. However I added the notes from the Grand Comic Book Database that also mentions the same names you did. I'll do some research cause I think I read something about this in a Kirby Co,lector issue.

You can find the unaltered version--

--in Marvel's b&w Essentials collections. The Thor figure was less dynamic--but it wasn't bad.
