Quote from: "Uncle Mxy"
Schaffenberger often drew Lois on Curt Swan covers.  I think the rest is Curt Swan, back when Curt would draw more like Boring with the barrel chest.

Looks to me like Swan drew the cover, Schaffenberger inked the girls, and someone else -- Stan Kaye? -- inked Supes and the skyline.

Yeah, I forgot about the inker...  probably Stan Kaye.  
FWIW, says:

Thank you for the explanations!
Now it makes sense: I knew that Lana left Metropolis (before 1975: I have hundreds of Superman comics from that year and Lana was already away) and that she returned in the second half of the '70s (I think it was one of the Metallo II issues), so I supposed that the marriage/son story was told in the middle. Instead, it was a retcon shown in a miniseries several years later. One of those stories almost nobody remembers, I'd say.
How old was the child? It's hard to think that such an event has been told in a Superman comic.
By the way, was the child killed in Italy? Italian terrorists (and writing those two words together makes me feel very ashamed, I hope you can understand me) didn't use to act in other countries, for what I remember.

Captain Marvel - Italian Earth-Prime Superman'll be a job for Superman!
