I think it goes without saying at this point to anyone that reads my blogs that I absolutely did not like Irresistible at all. The entire premise was maybe decent, if the writers had meant to take it to some place meaningful. I thought having read the first issue that the main character would find out that love is not the same as obsession and that when he would realize that the feelings that he harboured for his ex-girlfriend were wrong and misplaced. That is not what happened though, instead the series ended with a completely different ending (I don't know ... maybe I just don't get it.) In the throes of being upset over the depiction of the females I critiqued one panel in particular (about the depiction of high heels) but when I went back to look at that page I noticed something else which I hadn't before. In the meager hotel room where the protagonist is hiding out the walls are covered by quite expensive Van Goghs. Maybe this was just just an attempt to stretch his artistic ability, but the end version serves as a parody of the series itself. Van Gogh's life was one of tragedy and misplaced love but one which was capable of expressing great beauty through art. The series has the same downfalls, but also succeeds at beauty through art, even if it is just in the form of copying Van Gogh's paintings.
