What's the French Comics Canon? What are the books it's assumed everyone has read if you read French comics?

I'm interested in hiring an illustrator to turn a recently completed screenplay into a graphic novel. Any ideas/resources I can use to create a budget for such a project? I'm looking to come up with a ballpark figure which can be fine-tuned later. Where do I start? The story is set in Los Angeles and the desert Southwest. Any suggestions regarding potential illustrators from that part of the world would be appreciated.

The problem is that I have no idea what the new releases are and I can't seem to find a centralized list of upcoming titles with enough description. [more inside]
