** In TheSixties, ''ComicBook/Asterix'' had almost become unavailable in Germany. It was in 1965 that ''ComicBook/FixUndFoxi'' creator Rolf Kauka imported and not only translated, but [[ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange Germanized]] it into ''Siggi & Babarras'' which he used as a vehicle for his right-wing political views. Goscinny and Uderzo found out what he did and had their publisher Dargaud forbid these methods. This, in combination with Kauka's stubbornly continuing, had Goscinny and Uderzo refuse any licensing to Germany until 1967 when Ehapa promised to publish a version where the Gauls remain Gauls and the main characters' names remain untouched.

* Marvel and DC Comics have a hard time with publishing their comic books in the Belgian region Flanders and the Netherlands. Probably because De Standaard, who has almost complete dominance over all books in these regions, refuses to sell their comic books. You may still find them in some areas there, but saying that a good chunk of their library is never translated into Dutch for that reason may be an understatement.

* Panini has been importing and translating the ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' IDW comics for years now. This included the ''Main Series'' and all ''Micro Series'' and ''[=FIENDship=] is Magic'' issues, but not the ''Friends Forever'' comics. The reason must be Panini's four-month release rate: They're lagging behind a lot already, but if they were to include ''Friends Forever'', that'd get much worse.

* Pretty much any European comic, aside from ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' and ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}''. Most successful European comics (such as ''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske'' and ''ComicStrip/{{Jommeke}}'') do actually have a part of their library that is translated to English, but poor initial sales has more often than not been the main reason for the refusal to export comic books to foreign markets.

* PaperinikNewAdventures: This series was a huge hit in Italy, creating a new DarkerAndEdgier universe for the superhero Paperinik (DonaldDuck alter-ego), a whole new pack of memorable [[OldHeroNewPals friends, allies and enemies]] and discussing mature themes such as the difference between what is logical and what is right, how humankind would/should treat other forms of sentient intelligence (especially artificial ones) and the consequences of our actions. So far, the comic book series has only been exported to some European countries.

** A good proportion of the work of [[Creator/{{Moebius}}]] (basically almost everything except ''Comicbook/TheIncal'') is practically impossible to find in English. Older volumes are mostly long out of print and sell for massive amounts online, and newer volumes have not been translated at all, reportedly because Giraud's widow has no interest in doing so.
