    Adams' Flash run gets its big signature story arc and it ends on a very emotional note with a pair of characters getting an overdue quality moment together. This could have been the farewell issue of Adams' run, but it's satisfying to know he's not done yet making these memorable Flash moments. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 4, 2023

    The Flash #796 ends the One-Minute War with a fantastic finale. The new concept is clunky and odd within the context of everything else included in the book, but the last battle itself and the action of the issue as a whole are magnificent. And by the end of the story, the classic energy and hopeful feeling of classic Flash books have returned. Read Full Review

    I think at some points this story struggled with just how much it had to juggle, but it had all the strengths of Adams' run and has left the entire franchise in a stronger place. Read Full Review

    Overall, the One-Minute War wasnt awful. However, it still wasnt my favorite issue or arc of Adams Flash run today. Sadly, Adams time is coming closer and closer to an end. I would love to see him hang in there for a bit longer. Nevertheless, we still get to read Adams on other titles. And as we all know, all good things must come to an end. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Bergamini Apr 4, 2023

    The Flash #796 concludes The One-Minute-War in a mostly satisfying way, although the several pencilers, inkers, and colorists makes for an uneven read. Some of the plotlines end in a contrived manner, but overall everything concludes in a neat fashion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 4, 2023

    The Flash #796 is an almost strong finish to an event that started weakly and got better as it progressed. The tone, dialog, and action hit all the right notes for what Flash Family fans could want, but the cobbled-together art from too many artists with too-different styles is off-putting.

    The Comic Book Spot - Ian Miller Apr 11, 2023

    Though a bit of compression is visible in the three separate art teams scattered over the pages of this arc finale & in the breakneck pacing, One Minute War ends as a well above average. It's a thoroughly enjoyable arc of Jeremy Adams' brilliant Flash run. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 5, 2023

    One way or another, it all gets resolved. The sinister-looking villain does what sinister-looking villains do. The cool-looking hero does what the cool-looking hero does. Theres a combat. Theres a resolution. Things have shifted a bit by the end of the issue, but that much is to be expected when things move as quickly as they do in a story like the One-Minute War. Read Full Review
