    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.

    Startled Maggie made the Salon Saloon’s Heavy 100 list for 2012.

    This has the potential to be a downright fascinating series when all is said and done

    Kevin Bramer of 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 writes on High-Low

    [I]t’s hard not to fall prey to the charm of this book.
