Well I know this part of the forum is not very popular but here is some francophone authors that are really great if they are translated in your country try them. It worth it
Let's start with some famous ones but well they have to be there
Moebius (and someone else :-)
Some with crazy minds but we don't care
Marc Antoine Mathieu
The new generation
Nicolas de Crecy
Sorry for those I have forgotten, there are so many. Anyway if you have some question about French and Belgium BD I will be more than happy to answer you.
And here are some of the videos of Boulet drawing some notes of his blog, this guy talent is just plainly annoying :-)

How could I forget him
Oh I did not put him in the list yet. Guy delisle is a French Canadian author who write slice of life autobiographical comics based on his journey in countries with political issues (euphemism). Contrary to the authors above most of his work are already translated in English. His last comic Chroniques de Jerusalem won the best prize in Angoulême this year.
He will soon start an American tour where he will sign his book, in case you are interested the date and place are available here
