Obscure Shuster: Ace
Just before Joe Shuster did a love story and a filler in the same issue for Standard in 1950 he did a love story for Ace: "Romance on the Range" in Western Love Trails 7, November 1949. The title lasted only from #7 to #9. I'm only just getting into Ace's comics, with the romance titles on the back burner, so I don't know if he did any more for them. The inks are different from the Standard story and filler's, but one way or the other this story's inks don't look at all to me like early Superman work, i.e. Shuster himself.
