Notes:

 

There are still some problems above.

 

We don't account for Lew Sayre Schwartz's promo story, nor all of the reprints, especially the authorized Gordon & Gotch in Australia and the US Private Eyes.

 

10/15/1951 - 01/05/1952 Good Hunting says "Strip adapted into the TV script by the same name" but I can't find an episode by that title.

 

09/07/1950 - 12/29/1950 Arms says "Reprinted in The Saint [Avon] no.2 (UK)", but that should either say "US" or have "Thorp and Porter" as the publisher since there isn't a 1:1 relationship between the US and UK numbering.

 

We also need the exact artist transition dates and the Harry Harrison attributions.

 

The titles come from Charteris' scripts but may differ in any referenced in the actual newspaper strips.

Your listing of the Saint strip chronology has been very helpful.

Here are a few additions:

New York - reprinted in The Saint Detective Cases #8 Avon (US)

Beauty Scam – reprinted in TSDC #8 Avon (US)

Arms – reprinted in The Saint #10 Avon (US)

Valdor – reprinted in The Saint #11 Avon (US)

Hell – as best I can tell, this probably includes two connected stories:

The Goldmine Murders (title from comic book) – reprinted in The Saint #11 Avon (US)

The Scientist and the Zombies (title from comic book) – reprinted in The Saint #10 Avon (US)

Midnight – reprinted in The Saint # 12 Avon (US)

Plays with Fire – reprinted in The Saint # 12 Avon (US)

The name of the television episode based on “Good Hunting” is “The Russian Prisoner,” from Season Five.
