Belgium and France have a long tradition in comics. They have a common history for comics (see Franco-Belgian comics) and magazines.

In the early years of its history, magazines had a large place on the comics market and were often the only place where comics were published. Most of them were kids-targeted.

In the 1970s, satirical and more adult publications begun to appear. In the 1990s, there was a large pallet of comics magazine. In the late 1990s, some notable comics have disappeared and only a few remain.
