Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves reviewed at Boyce McClain's Comics Corner
Boyce McClain's Comics Corner, #152 August: "In Stone Bridge Press and author Patrick Galloway's Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves: The Samurai Film Handbook, readers are given the actual historical facts about Samurai and how the sword-yielding warriors were translated to Japanese film. Careful and meticulous attention is given to the actors, directors and studios that made such a transition possible and Samurai films from the 1950s until present day are listed, explained and discussed. Black and white photos are sprinkled throughout the book with a special Appendix capping things off. It's an extremely comprehensive examination of the genre that Japanese film fans are sure to enjoy."
