The best-known reprint of Avengers comic strips must be the 1968-published Gold Key comic, John Steed Emma Peel (no 'and'), which features two stories taken from TV Comic and redisplayed in colour.  The comic has a fantastic three colour cover featuring an image from 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Station'.

There exists a variant cover for this comic, which features photographs of Steed and Mrs Peel on the inside front covers and an Avengers pin-up on the back.  The stories reprinted are 'The Roman Invasion' from TV Comic issues 756 to 760, and 'The Mirage Maker' from issues 761 to 766.  Note that neither of these TV Comic Avengers strips was given an 'on-page' title, so these two titles were probably invented by the editors at Gold Key.

  When catastrophe threatens Merrie England, two groovy agents stand ever ready to do it in! John Steed, jaunty, debonair, the very model of a proper British gentleman and Emma Peel, hip, with-it and a very mod judo swinger.

The other US Avengers comic was the co-production, with the British ACME comics company, Steed and Mrs. Peel, which was published between 1990 and 1992. A little more detail is available here.
