Pop Focus: Leslie Charteris' "The Saint" in comic books

Leslie Charteris' "The Saint" has enjoyed a decades-long history in novels, films, TV and... comic books - at least on a few brief occasions.

Below are covers of the character's late 1940s series published by Avon in the U.S., along with covers published for a 1960s series that ran in England and Australia. I love the crisp, clean lines of the British covers, and their cool graphic design.

Images from the Grand Comics Database, which is still seeking scans of a few missing "Saint" covers.
