    This Adams run has been a continually giving gift thats sadly nearing its end, but not before Adams provides a few more reasons to be glad it lasted as long as it did. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 18, 2023

    The Flash #797 is brilliant, youthful fun. The kids have to save the day independently, with barely an adult to be seen. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 18, 2023

    There are a ton of easter eggs here, and the cliffhanger leaves us with a plot development that might be more likely to be played out in Adams' upcoming run. It's not quite up to the last arc's level, but it's a fun one-off story. Read Full Review

    The Flash #797 is a weird story to follow Adams One-Minute War. Its not a follow-up nor does it take place around the event. So, it just seems weird for Adams to focus on Ace and the twins as his last little story arc of the series. Moreover, as I stated above, the time placement mixed with the characters made the plot a bit more confusing than it needed to be. However, the Flash #797 takes Adams back to his roots with this book making it fun and exciting again. The lighthearted nature of the comic mixed with the subtle humor from Adams provides a strong showing for one of (if not the) last arcs of his run. If youre a Flash fan, I recommend giving it a shot! Just remember, the focus of this issue isnt on Barry or Wally but on Ace and the kids instead. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Spot - Ian Miller Apr 22, 2023

    Jeremy Adams, Serg Acuna, and Tom Derenick turn in another excellent adventure, this time focusing on the delightful Flash twins and their friends new and old. Plausible and delightful character interactions and plotting are greatly enhanced by polished, appealing art, once again DC's best book on the shelves that all too few are reading. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 26, 2023

    The journey into a deeper darkness may be coming with the next couple of issues. Granny Goodness always had a potential for greater darkness than what truly managed to hit the page before. Adams appears to be moving things in the direction of some very seriously weighty drama in the issues to come. It may lack the crazy energy of the huge group dynamic of the past several issues, but the story thats emerging here does seem to be entering into promising territory. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Seth A. Romo Apr 18, 2023

    Flash 797 is a fun issue that doesnt have any major stakes in the Flash series. Despite having a weak plot and jarring change in art style halfway through, it was still an overall decent experience. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 18, 2023

    The Flash #797 kicks off a new arc where the Flash Kids and Animal Girl get kidnapped by a gangster with a wishing machine. The hijinks and sibling dynamics are fun, but the threat level is deflated by an overly light tone, and the art looks rushed. Read Full Review

    While this latest issue doesn't break the wheel, I found myself smiling throughout and certainly the hilarity of introducing a character named "Reverse Grodd," Gorilla Grodd wearing the Reverse Flash costume for the record. Sometimes, making a reader smile throughout can be more than enough. Read Full Review
