During the early 1960s, the largest part of Vogt's production was for the foreign market. He drew for the British Fleetway agency, as well as the German Bull Press. It is in 1963, when Vogt begins his collaboration with the publishing house Columba, where he created his first memorable works. After several years of making comic adaptations of movies, he teamed up with scriptwriter Robin Wood to create the comedy 'Mi Novia y Yo'. Many series followed until the early 1970s, often in cooperation with scriptwriters like Ray Collins, Alfredo Grassi, Carlos Albiac and Hector German Oesterheld.
