Hrmm the front is Haruhiko Mikimoto, but the backcover (the one with the
gun), should be Hiroyuki Kitazume.

Compare this:

This one's Haruhiko Mikimoto.

These 2 were by Masahisa Suzuki.

These are in the illustration world books.
However, I haven't seen the ZZ one except for on the CD. But when I first
saw it, I thought it could have even been Masami Oobari.
