With one last cover, James Jean says farewell to <i>Fables</i>

Vertigo's Fables #81 hit shelves this week, marking the final issue for award-winning cover artist James Jean. On his blog, Jean breaks down the process for this last cover, a nod to the Pietà featuring Red Riding Hood and Boy Blue, with plenty of references to other covers he's created for the series since 2002.

At Geekanerd, Degan bids farewell to Jean, whose "covers for Fables were easily the most beautiful, most poignant, and at times, the most sexy." It's a nice retrospective, with plenty of commentary on individual covers.
