From the Penny-Farthing Press guidelines:

Please make sure all submissions include a synopsis that is brief and to the point. Remember, the synopsis is the “first impression” of your submission and you know what they say about first impressions. If you are submitting just one single-issue story (standard 32 pp.), you may send the full script with your submission. If you are submitting a story for any kind of series or graphic novel, please send only the first chapter of the series. If we like what we see, we will contact you to see more. If you are submitting a completed work (script, art work and lettering) copies of this may be sent instead.

Do not send samples/proposals via fax or email. All such submissions will be destroyed without review.
