"Les Blondes" is a [[FrancoBelgianComics French comic]] written and drawn by Gaby and Dzack. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As the name implies]] it is about {{Dumb Blonde}}s.

The humour involves a lot of slapstick and wordplay based on translating blonde jokes to a visual medium. Given most of the cast are drawn as [[MsFanservice gorgeous]] suprisingly few of the jokes are based around sex, even when it comes to innuendo. While there are lots of one shot blondes characters who appear only for a single page gag the lead (and series mascot) is Vanessa, recognisable by her distinctive hairstyle. She's very sweet natured and likable and very pretty but incredibly foolish and [[CloudCuckooLander permanently at odds with reality]]. Other important characters include Vanessa's niece (exactly the same as her aunt but a pre-teen), fellow DumbBlonde Cindy and her good (and thankfully much smarter) non-blonde friends Kim, Chloe, Michelle and Anne.
