The French magazine Charlie Hebdo has revealed a defiant cover for its latest edition, following the Paris atrocity .

On the front of the latest edition, available to buy tomorrow, is a cartoon of a man drinking champagne, riddled with bullet holes.

Instead of blood, booze spurts out of the wound.

The defiant headline reads: "They have weapons. Screw them, we’ve got champagne."

The head offices of Charlie Hebdo were attacked by ISIS gunmen in January leaving 12 people dead.

Yesterday Joann Sfar, a cartoonist for the magazine, dismissed the 'pray for Paris' hashtag which has been trending worldwide on social media.

He wrote on Instagram: "Friends from the whole world, thank you for #prayforparis, but we don't need more religion.

"Our faith goes to music! Kisses! Life! Champagne and Joy! #Parissaboutlife." 

At least 129 people were killed in a series of attacks across the French capital on Friday night.
