The Saint - Comics Version

The first "Saint" I remember is probably the most recognizable:  Roger Moore playing Simon Templar (the Saint) in the early 1960's television series.  I also remember a late 1970's television series called Return of the Saint, and of course there was the 1997 movie with Val Kilmer in the title role.  My favorite Saint is unquestionably George Sanders, from the series of movies in the 1930's-40's.  I never knew there was a comic book version, but I am not surprised.  Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine posted this 1949 issue of The Saint featuring a story entitled, "The Saint Breaks A Spell."
