TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3813 - Today's review blog is on the trade paperback titled: 'Irresistible' from Zenescope Entertainment.
So what's the book about?
Here's the promotional info:
Allen Keeg was your average middle age heart broken sap who just went through the worst break up in his life. That was a year ago. Since then Allen's been having trouble getting back into the swing of things. But all that's about to change. When Allen saves an old woman from being mugged he will be given an amazing supernatural ability that will change his whole life. But is the gift of being irresistible to every woman he meets a gift or a dreadful curse.
So what's my thoughts on this book?
First of all, I've got to say that I had already read issues #2 & #3 of the limited series that this TPB (trade paperback), is compiled from.
I hadn't review blogged either of those, because I had missed issue #1, and wasn't for sure what my feelings for this limited series were in total.
Now with the TPB read, (reprinting issues #1-4 of the Limited Series, I can tell you that the series came to a satisfying conclusion. At least for me...
Now that I know how the main character, Allen, became 'Irresistible' to women, it made more sense to me. The storyline was pretty good, as I'm sure a lot of guys that read comics would like to be 'Irresistible' to women! The creator & writer of the series, Raven Gregory, did a fine job here!
The artwork by Derlis Santacruz & Amin Amat was fine also, and the colors by Franco Riesco and Mike Stefan covered the series well.
I'm definitely believing that reading this storyline in a collected TPB format is the way to read this. It is actually pretty good, and not exactly over the top in depicting the outcome. It is NOT for younger children though!
The Cover Gallery at the end of the storyline is nice to see.
There was also a preview of Fly: The Fall #1 & also a preview of The Waking: Dreams End #1 after the Cover Gallery. I'm not going to comment on those two stories here.
I'm giving this book a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.
