Penny Farthing Press and our online comic, Luci Phurr's Imps, was featured in the Houston Chronicle Feb. 1st, 2013 print and online edition in the 29-95 section. The article, "The Top Five Houston Comic Books" written by Jef Rouner, aka, "Jef With One F", had this to say about Penny-Farthing Press and Luci Phurr's Imps:            

  "Houston's Penny-Farthing Press is responsible for plenty top of the line comics and graphic novels, including Barbara Hambly's Anne Steelyard trilogy and The Victorian. About three years ago, it branched into Web comics with Luci Phurr's Imps, and it's been going strong ever since.

 

The strip is absolutely adorable. As the result of an office mix-up, three of Hell's workers - Pain, Tears and Misfortune - become the helpers of a young girl named Luci. This doesn't keep them from getting involved in things like the Mayan apocalypse, however, which they recently managed to avert with the help of an angel and the demon of Manipulative Advertising. Well... not so much avert as overreact while a Mayan demon reset the calendar and asked to be friends afterward. Honestly, it's like someone made a comic stripout of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's Good Omens."
