Reading Room: SPACE ACE "Space Patrol"

Magazine Enterprises' Space Ace was a curious strip...
...starting out relatively-sophisticated, as we'll show you here in this tale from ManHunt #1 (1947)...
 ...and progressively becoming more juvenile as it's first incarnation progressed, as seen in the final tale of that version.
When the series was rebooted, it was extremely, shall we say, "kid-friendly" as shown HERE and HERE, but ended with more adult-oriented scripts and art as seen HERE and HERE!
The Grand Comics DataBase attributes the art to Fred Guardineer (who also did the final story), but it doesn't look like Guardineer's other work, so I'm skeptical as to the accuracy of the assessment.
