Cosmic Pirate seems to have a signature in the bottom left, but I cannot make it out exactly, even on Mobygames' higher-resolution scan.

Trouble Brewing by Silversoft:

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/entry/5 ... ble_Brewin

The artist seems to be Phil Gascoine just by the drawing style and by the partial appearance of his signature (down, center). The SC inlay didn't spot it well, but the scan available at @Mort 's site is better to see:

The signature is too similar, what do you think?

Yes that's his signature.

It's also worth mentioning he did other work for Silversoft (Robin of Sherlock).

Samurai Warrior by Firebird:

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/entry/4 ... ai_Warrior

The game is based on the comic by Stan Sakai.

If we check the inlay, we can see Sakai's signature down, right. it is clearly the author of the cover.

You're correct. (It was originally drawn by Sakai for the cover of the comic 'Anything Goes!' Issue #6 1986, but reused for the game release in 1988).
