The Fraction is moments away from victory, but they forgot about one thing…an almost-10-year-old with red hair and the power to turn things around. Finally, Irey West has found her new superhero name, and she intends to use it while saving the Flash Family from certain doom!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 8, 2023

    Given Adamss treatment of the ensemble, its not hard to imagine the current Flash series splitting off into a couple of different titles that would have a chance to focus on a couple of different Flashes. It wouldnt be the strangest thing thats ever happened. Adamss writing certainly HAS found the right appeal for just about every character in the ensemble. Adams, Dias, and Guerrero are developing an entertaining dynamic for every hero in the book. The villains scarcely have any time to make much of an impact, but it really doesnt matter. The Flash family is interesting enough to carry the title. Read Full Review

    The younger Flashes dominate this issue, but it's really Jay who steals the show in a great interrogation scene that features one of the bestand grossestuses of speed powers I've seen in an escape attempt. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 7, 2023

    The Flash #794 blends the dark and the light. It has those streaks of hope that will always be present in a Flash comic, coming from such strong and unrelenting characters. But there is also a deep sadness to the book that Adams brings that is both gorgeous and devastating. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Bergamini Mar 7, 2023

    The Flash #794 makes time travel seem like the most logical solution to a problem better than any comic has before. The art is electric and the spotlight on Irey continues to be a higher point for the overall narrative. Read Full Review

    The next chapter in "The One-Minute War" is an exciting one, as a kid hero makes a case for being your next favorite superhero. Pair that with the expert handling of multiple scenes as the heroes gain a new edge on the Fraction, and you have a highly entertaining event you can't miss. Flash history is made in The Flash #794.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 7, 2023

    The Flash #794 is another strong issue in the One-Minute War event, with an Irey-centric issue that cements her place as a hero in the Flash Family. The family dynamics and their teamwork are what make this issue work, and you get that family feeling from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Adams continues the "One Minute War" by injecting some fantastic superhero action with this latest entry, much of it focused on Wally West's speedy daughter Irey, with an assist by the original Flash, Jay Garrick. Read Full Review

    One Minute War remains a fun read showing Adams skill at making an engaging Flash Family event thats only being held back by an ill-fitting art style. Read Full Review

    There are just too many holes, unexplained circumstances, convenient reveals, and out-of-character developments that leave this reviewer scratching his head. Plus, Id talk about the art, however, it would be more of the same as what I already said in my prior reviews and Im truthfully tired of repeating myself with something that wont change anyway through this entire war. So, whats the point? If you want to know my thoughts on the art, just look at every review of this event to this point. Readers, the best part of Adams writing has been Wally and hes basically out of the story now. So, mixed with the chaotic, fast-paced action and story in this week's Flash #794, Im just finding it hard to stay invested in this story. Read Full Review
