Space Ace-Larry Woromay-1950

A pulp illustrator who moved into comics (even doing some work at EC), GCD correctly points out that here Woromay is clearly swiping Wayne Boring's version of SUPERMAN, then prominent in the comics as well as in the newspaper strips.

I'm new to Woromay. Very keen on him!
Tracked him down after reading Marvel Tales 112 which seems to have a story by him in it though not often credited (it is excellent!). Will put it on my blog soon.
Looking at the above, is it too much to suggest that he is swiping Bill Everett here and there as well as Boring?
His later perfecting of a Jack Davies copy style was yet to come, evidently.
