Charlie Mensuel (or simply Charlie, "mensuel" being a French term for a monthly periodical) was a French monthly comics magazine. Its publication began in February 1969, and ceased in February 1986.

Tagged "The newspaper full of humour and comic strips", it also adopted the slogan, "The newspaper one reads on the couch while munching chocolate". Its name was an homage to Charlie Brown, hero of the comic strip Peanuts, and a parallel to a contemporary Italian magazine, Linus. The comics featured in Charlie included French originals as well as translations of American strips — Peanuts and others — and of Italian stories originally published in Linus.
