    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 17, 2023

    The Flash #791 is a heartbreaking sign of intent. The One-Minute War very much gives depth and weight to a comic that has been light for a while. Read Full Review

    This story seems to be bringing the entire Flash family together, including reunions we weren't expecting like Max Mercury and Bart Allen finally meeting again for the first time in well over a decade. It feels like a celebration of the Flash family after so long of DC seeming to want to pare down legacies and families. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 17, 2023

    The strength of the Flash family is the key element that sets the "One-Minute War" apart from other superhero invasion stories. Adams captures the unique nature of every character while playing up the love and kindness they share for each other. It's an all-out war on Earth and the Flash family with great ensemble writing, making for addictive reading. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Jan 17, 2023

    "The One Minute War continues in this all-out escalation of the already dire situation. Heartbreaking and suspenseful, Adams and his team aren't pulling any punches when it comes to this latest apocalyptic Speedster event. Read Full Review

    While the final page of the issue is a little eye-roll-inducing, with a villain that I can only describe as an antagonistic swiss army knife of tropes, it's another solid entry for the Scarlet Speedster overall. Read Full Review

    The second part to The One-Minute war is another fun issue of set up; however, it is still plagued by the same art issues as the first part. Jeremy Adams is setting up a to here and we can only hope that theres a substantial payoff for all of his effort. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jan 17, 2023

    The One-Minute War feels flat, with little excitement, and surface-level character connections with everyone other than Wally and his family. This event needs more substance fast before it loses too much steam. Hopefully, the Flash: One-Minute War Special #1 can add some spice, interest, and pizzazz to this event that just feels like its missing the same fun and excitement that Adams has been used to delivering since hes taken over the title.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 16, 2023

    The Flash #791 is a better-than-average DC comic that delivers plenty of action and revelations. However, the art doesn't sell the drama the script calls for, and the villains are increasingly one-dimensional. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 17, 2023

    Two chapters in and One Minute War still isnt resonating. The Fraction has been an uninspiring invasion force and Cruzs ill-fitting style with the dramatic nature of the story hasnt made for a captivating arc so far. Adams still has time to turn this around, but as of yet it hasnt measured up to the incredibly high standards of Adams previous arcs. Read Full Review
