The One-Minute War wages on and Jeremy Adams is not letting anyone catch their breath. The Fraction seems to be an unrelenting force that is determined to get what they want. Partnered with artist Roger Cruz on pencils and Wellington Dias on colors, the group does a stellar job keeping the stakes raised in this fast-moving story.
With the Flash Family united and working on a game plan, it seems they’re starting to get their bearings on the present threat. This war hasn’t been without some tragedy, and it’s time for our favorite speedsters to strike back. Before they can do that, however, the family needs to get their ducks in a row. Wally may be the main Flash right now, but Barry hasn’t lost his edge. Adams does a great job showing their leadership skills as they work together to prepare for their attack. However, the story wouldn’t be as strong as it is without the supporting cast. Seeing Jay Garrick, Jesse Quick, and Linda Park-West work with Wally and Barry shows how close these characters are to each other.
That being said, the primary focus of the issue is on Bart Allen and Wallace West working together. The two make for quite the pair. Adams captures their voices perfectly throughout the story. While Bart may be impulsive, he certainly isn’t stupid. And while Wallace is more of a strategist, he’s willing to keep an open mind. Seeing them work together to help everyone else makes the issue very entertaining. The two may not see eye to eye on strategy, but their hearts are in the right place. Together, the two provide some light moments through their banter and personality that properly balances with the ongoing conflict.
The Fraction continue to be an eerie threat in the story. Their plans are both thorough and terrifying in action. They’re a decently well-oiled machine with a terrifying leader. Miss Murder continues to be a looming threat who prefers violence over long speeches giving away her plans. However, we don’t how the Fraction has been able to make some significant acquisitions that show how serious of a threat they truly are.
The art is another strong point of the issue. In a story where time is of the essence, Roger Cruz does a great job handling both action scenes and somber moments within the issue. It’s a nice style that focuses more on the action and small details about the characters. This makes a more compelling story that does a strong job of conveying emotion and intensity throughout the story. Wellington Dias similarly does a strong job coloring the issue through the tiny hues and shadows that animates the story nicely.
Overall, The Flash #792 is another strong issue that focuses on Bart and Wallace working together to bring the Flash Family closer to victory. Adams continues to deliver a riveting story that keeps readers engaged from start to finish.
