Back to the Future Part III (367): Drew Struzan
The cover is the same as the movie poster: http://www.impawards.com/1990/back_to_t ... t_iii.html

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/entry/3 ... e_Part_III

The cover to Back to the Future Part II (366) looks like it is not actually a movie poster, but has been painted using a poster as reference.

Some of the PSS wargames series covers (Battle for Midway, Battle of Britain, Bismarck, Tobruk) are painted and signed by an artist whose name might be Roger Pearse.

Unfortunately the signatures are not very clear in the available scans:

(I think the last one might have a year number after the name, perhaps "85")

Panic (PSS) also has a signature, which looks like it could be the same artist's, but again the scan isn't clear.

Swords & Sorcery (PSS) does have the same signature. The scan is clear, but the surname is covered by a logo.

Of course, Panic was released in 1983, so it can't be "...89". Presumably it's "...82" or "...83", perhaps with a short diagonal underline.

This makes me think the date in the other signature might be "...86", with a similar underline.
