This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jack Burnley (b. 1911) was the first outside artist directly in the company's employ to work on Superman.  After working on special advertising material, he began with the story in World's Fair Comics #2.  Then he took over Action Comics from September to April 1941(28-34), after which he took over the daily comic strip.

Jack was clearly a superior draughtsman to anybody who had worked on the strip before. Thus he was often assigned to do covers, succeeding Fred Ray with Superman 19.  He left the Superman strip to work on his own comic book feature, Starman, which appeared in Adventure Comics beginning in April 1941.  From 1944-46 he pencilled the Batman Sunday page and, for a time in 1944, was penciling both the Batman and Superman Sunday pages. 

He left DC in 1947 to return to sports cartooning..
