Who doesn't love James Jean? I came across the above image from the forth coming Warren Ellis scripted Castlevania film. Jean is doing some of the concept art, and this pic is enough to make me want to go see the film, and that's saying something because to be quite honest I haven't played all that many video games in the last 20 years. I do have a Wii, but I don't think that counts. Anyway, I haven't blogged about my love for this man yet, and I've been blogging for a few months now, I can't believe it hasn't come up. His covers on Fables have been collected into a wonderful hardcover for $39.99. Get it. Right now, get in your car and drive over to your local A/F. Makes a great gift for yourself or a friend. It's great being able to see all of his covers without the logo and trade dress.
I believe Jean's days in comics are past at this point, he's moved on to bigger and better things, but we can still pledge our undying adoration to him. We will continue to carry his books whatever else we can get our hands on at the shop. If the above mentioned books are too high end for you we also carry his postcard book entitled Hugs and Kisses and it only costs $9.95.
