Comment: The story by Joe Shuster is by THAT Joe Shuster. He worked at Charlton doing pencils in 1954. If you are ever wondering about credits, check out http://www.bailsprojects.com which has an online version of Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Jerry passed away just last week, but he was the father of comic book fandom and started collecting credits for the previously unknown artists and writers back in the '50's. He will be missed.
