"This has the potential to be a downright fascinating series when all is said and done." —Optical Sloth
"The way [Umber] draws her parents as having blank eyes behind their eyeglasses is almost as perfect as the way she draws herself: a crazy-haired curmudgeon with either a glint of mischief or a permanent scowl on her face." —Rob Clough, critic
"[I]t’s hard not to fall prey to the charm of this book." —Justin Giampaoli, Poopsheet Foundation
Startled Maggie made the Salon Saloon's Heavy 100 list for 2012.
Startled Maggie is an auto-bio serial focusing on a mischievous little spit-fire. Drawn in light pencil, this new series is pointed at the ephemeral qualities of memory and what makes early life such a funny and charming place.
