* ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'': Creator Albert Uderzo has apologized about the very anti-German ''Recap/AsterixAndTheGoths'' album. In this story the Goths (Germans) [[AllGermansAreNazis are depicted as being evil and militaristic.]] He said the story was made just two decades after World War II and anti-German sentiments were still vivid then. In later "Asterix" stories Germans are depicted more sympathetically.

** It was so bad that it was once again referenced in a later Avengers series (Volume 3, specifically) during Carol's time as Warbird, where Kang the Conqueror (basically, Immortus' younger self, [[ContinuitySnarl it's intentionally complicated]]) ''also'' had a son called Marcus (Kang and his various permutations rather like the name for some reason), but this Marcus not only eventually performed a HeelFaceTurn (albeit one that [[HeelFaceDoorSlam resulted in him getting killed]]), he was infatuated with Carol, but starting with issue #47 (when they first met), he was respectful towards her and [[EvenEvilHasStandards went out of his way to avoid doing what his "brother" did to her,]] instead trying to earn her trust and affections legitimately - especially since [[ThisExplainsSoMuch he looked up said "brother" in his father's records]] after Carol lashed out at him in a fury after understandably mistaking him for her rapist. The whole sub-plot could potentially be seen as an apology from Marvel, or at least a genuine attempt at showing they'd learned from the debacle and could and would do better.

* [[ComicBook/ChickTract Jack Chick]] stands by all of his infamous Chick Tracts, at least enough to reproduce them all on his website. All except one: ''[[http://www.fmh-child.org/Lisa.html Lisa]]''. While it follows one of the standard Chick Tract formulas (Bad person has something even worse happen to him, godly friend tells him that at this point it's "Jesus or Hell," person chooses Jesus, all is forgiven.)[[note]]The other standard formula being "the person rejects Jesus or dies before he can choose, goes to Hell, warning to the reader"[[/note]]. The catch here is that the person in question was [[WouldHurtAChild raping his own daughter, then is blackmailed into letting a neighbor do the same.]] And the godly friend blames the whole situation on porn. Really. Even Chick thought that stretched forgiveness too far, hence the exclusion of that tract.

* Most at Marvel Comics, in particular writer Chris Claremont deeply regret ''The Avengers #200'', regarding its controversial storyline regarding Carol Danvers giving birth to Marcus, the son of Immortus who had impregnated Ms. Marvel in Limbo with the intent to have himself reborn in the mortal world to claim her heart; said impregnation being the result of Marcus seeking out Ms. Marvel's affection with whom he desired intercourse to create a new hybrid race, a feat only accomplished after manipulating her feelings with Immortus' machinations. Infamously dubbed by one reviewer as "The Rape of Ms. Marvel", its head writer Jim Shooter has disowned the comic and referred to it in one interview as "heinous". Chris Claremont and his team went on to publish "Avengers Annual #10", featuring the return of Ms. Marvel to Earth and scolding the Avengers for not recognizing the harm inflicted upon her.

* Creator/DanDidio admitted that ''ComicBook/TheNew52''[='s=] "blank slate" was a mistake, since no one knew where to take any of the characters after the ContinuityReboot. Hence why the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' series was made as an apology to fans who were pissed off with the controversial reboot.

** The second, ''[[Recap/TintinTintinInTheCongo Tintin In The Congo]]'' (1930) contains many old stereotypes of Africans, causing a furor in the UK when it was released to the English reading public in 2005. There was also an unsuccessful private prosecution in Belgium to try to get the book banned as incitement to racism. Tintin's psychotic maiming of wildlife (blowing up a rhinoceros with a drilled hole and a stick of dynamite) is pretty hard to take as well. Hergé recognized this in retrospect and ''begged'' for them to be left out of print. Unlike the Soviet adventure, ''Tintin in The Congo'' was later redrawn and republished in color and with Hergé's later more polished art style. The rhinoceros was spared in the Scandinavian edition (except for the newest Swedish translation) and the English color edition.
