* The earlier strips of ''ComicStrip/{{Foxtrot}}'' are falling into this. The GoComics website only goes back to 1996 so the only way to read any comics from before that year is to buy the first five treasuries. These books are becoming harder to find.

* ''ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}'' suffers this as well Marvel has done a lousy job collecting and keeping in print most of the character's defining storylines. While both Essential Spider-Man and Essential Spider-Man have now reached Roger Stern and Peter David's legendary runs (and the first third of David Micheline's legendary run on Amazing Spider-Man released as an omnibus), good luck if you are wanting to find most of Spidey's stuff like [=DeMatteis=] and Gerry Conway's Spectacular Spider-Man or Tom [=DeFalco's=] Amazing Spider-Man.

* In general, the vast bulk of [[GoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age comics]] have simply never been reprinted in any form. Want to read stuff like the various 1940s Comicbook/Shazam series, the first appearance of Comicbook/VandalSavage, or pretty much ''anything'' that isn't selected Superman, Batman, or Captain America stories? Your best bet is torrent sites with image files often shot from ''university microfilm'' collections.
** And then there's anything that isn't a superhero genre story.

** While on the Subject of Nintendo, many of the old NintendoPower Comics count as this too. The only one to get a modern re release was TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast which got a 2015 Collected Edition by Viz Media in 2015. SuperMarioAdventures and StarFox on the other hand are lot more easer to find using unofficial internet scans, Especially since the Super Mario Adventures Graphic Novel sells in the hundreds on the internet these days.

* A lot of 1990s Marvel stuff remains uncollected, even with Marvel recently making headway in collecting it via their "Marvel Classics" line. The 1990s ''GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' series; ''Nightstalkers'' (which brought {{Blade}} back after fading away into comic limbo and resolved several major dangling plotlines from the 1970s ''Comicbook/TheTombOfDracula'' series); Thunderbolts, ''Generation X''; and ''X-Man'' has yet to be collected.

* ''ComicBook/FishPolice'', which was independently released for its first 11 issues, has had several reprints of the early issues. Comico reprited issues 1-4 in a colorized trade, and then reissued 5-11 (with some new material thrown in), but went bankrupt after printing issues 12-17. The series was picked up for Apple Comics for issues 18-26, after which Marvel did bowdlerized colorized reprints of issues 1-6. Issues 1-4 were ''again'' reprinted in a trade by IDW in 2011, but so far, everything afterward remains hard to find. There was also a six-issue LighterAndSofter spinoff called ''Fish Shticks'' that was only printed once by Comico.

*** Marvel has announced that the Creator/JimValentino run on the 1990s GOTG series (ie the first 26 issues or so) is being released in TPB format in 2014, most likely to capitalise on the release of the upcoming film.

* Any Daredevil that isn't Frank Miller's or part of the 2000s Marvel Knights reboot. In particular, Ann Nocenti's run has only ever received two collections (One, out-of-print, Daredevil Visionaries collection of Typhoid Mary and one more recent collection of Lone Stranger) despite running far longer than either of Miller's runs and featuring artwork not only by fan favourites John Romita Jr and Lee Weeks, but art from SteveDitko, Mark Bagley, amongst others.
