This biography from the Archives of AskART:
He began his comics career in 1940, inking, lettering and doing backgrounds on Batman.  Not content to work on one strip, Roussos' inks ended up all over the place in the early forties, including Captain America.  He worked closely with Jerry Robinson, and later Mort Meskin,   He worked on Nightro, the Black Terror and the Green Hornet, as well as DC strips Airwave, Vigilante, and Johnny Quick. He also put in stints on the famous EC  horror titles and drew a huge quantity of educational and promotional comics.  He continued to work in comics up until his death, including long stints at DC and Marvel as a colorist.

Often called, "Inky", Roussos' trademarks include huge full moons, and moody night scenes.  His backgrounds often consist totally of shadows with the objects casting them only implied.  In addition to his Batman duties, George was one of the main Superman inkers during the war and for some years thereafter, his work often being mistaken for Ed Dobrotka, or Stan Kaye. His Superman pencil jobs are often mistakenly attributed to Sam Citron or Ed Dobrotka. He is currently considered the most likely artist of the Superboy stories of 1947-49.
