Penny-Farthing Press is proud to announce that the cover art of their graphic novel, Captain Gravity and the Power of the Vril has been selected by the Society of Illustrators to appear in their annual book, Illustrators 49. Sal Velutto, penciller for Captain Gravity and the Power of the Vril was very excited to learn that his cover would be included in Illustrators 49.

When the Society of Illustrators asked him how he felt about being the artist for Captain Gravity and the Power of the Vril, Velutto said, "The temptation was too strong! It was irresistible! How can you illustrate a comic book story that has all the ingredients of the old pulp magazines (high adventure, fantasy, sorcery, mystery, horror/occult, science fiction, war and romance) With a title like Captain Gravity and the Power of the Vril, a 1939 setting and a publisher called Penny-Farthing Press, how could I not end up with something like this? I could not have been more excited to do it and I had a blast."

The Society of Illustrators was founded in 1901 to promote the art and appreciation of illustration, as well as its history and evolving nature, and to encourage high ideals through exhibitions, lectures, education, and by fostering a sense of community and open discussion. Previous honorees include Texas Monthly, The New York Times and Vanity Fair.

Founded in 1998 by Publisher Ken White and Editor-in-Chief Marlaine Maddux, Penny-Farthing Press has received numerous industry awards in recognition of the high production quality of their books including the prestigious Spectrum Award and the Gutenberg Metal D'Argent for Excellence in Printing. Penny-Farthing Press publishes a limited number of titles per year in order to insure the highest quality allowing only the finest products to leave PFP's doors. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas.
