    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 22, 2023

    With so many characters to be juggled in and amidst the central conflict, its some kind of miracle that Adams and company manage to keep it all together in a way that feels at all coherent, let alone...fun. The multi-generational Flash team is unlikely to continue working together forever, but Adams and company make it all so enjoyable that its difficult to imagine the current incarnation of the hero working any other way. Its just too much fun like this. Read Full Review

    The Flash #793 amps up the family feel, the frenetic energy, and the fun for a rousing plan to stop the Fraction. The family dynamics, during the big action moments and the small quiet moments, sell this issue, making this the best entry in the One-Minute War. Read Full Review

    If I have one complaint about this issue, it's that the story doesn't quite give itself enough room to breatherthere is so much going on here that it can feel like whiplash at times. But it's more like riding a thrilling, mile-a-minute roller coaster that always delivers in terms of suspense and excitement. Read Full Review

    The Flash #793 continues to be fast paced, even though this issue takes a slight breather for some important character moments. Fans of this run will appreciate that this arc brings the focus back to characters like Wally and Irey. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 21, 2023

    "One-Minute War," part four, balances new information about the Fraction with a plan to stop them dead in their tracks. The only problem is that plan was always going to b a B-plot, making for an entertaining enough issue but one that slows down an otherwise clever and fast-moving story. Read Full Review

    Adams on Flash ensures that the quality won't dip but so far, although this arc really would have benefitted from a different artist. Read Full Review

    The Flash #793 certainly has some promise with an ending that was overly reminiscent of a TV Drama putting our heroes' backs against the wall. However, with a shady brushing over of exactly who the corrections officer was, as well as more out-of-character remarks and reactions from Barry, I find myself struggling to get invested in the comic. A heavy explanation of that lack of desire is coming from this Cruz-led art team. I just continue to spiral back to the importance of finding an artist that complements your story well. And thats not the case here. Sure, The Flash #793 had its moments along with the subtle humor thats made Adams stories so successful. However, I dont know if its enough to overcome the artistic deficiencies this story has run into so far. Read Full Review
