From Alan Davis's website.
"The initial sketch for this Marvelman cover was a little too woolly and vague so Big Ben wasn't recognised during the approval process. Clearly visible in the final pencils I discovered there were legal issues preventing Big Ben appearing so he had to be removed. Rather than erasing the figure and risking damaging the page surface I drew the correction on a separate patch which I inserted after Mark had inked both parts." [Alan Davis]
The whole cover process - rough, pencils, inks (by Mark Farmer) and modified part - can be seen here.
The final illustration has been used as cover for Miracleman N. 4 (Marvel Comics).

The interview was conducted by Jon B. Cooke & George Khoury in May 2002.
I know that I've been notorious or famous for doing those very long scripts. When I went back to look at the first "Marvelman" script, I was shocked. How did I ever get away with this skimpy script? These descriptions are barely a paragraph long! Some of the panel descriptions are a few lines. These days, say Promethea, that's going to be a 48 pages of type for a 24-page comic, and there have been some like the Moebius strip page in Promethea #15 where the script was 10 pages of manuscript describing it, because it was very complex. I can imagine that my scripts were a lot longer than what DC was used to. [Alan Moore]
