Drawing New Color Lines

Angela Moreno Acosta

Jaqueline Berndt

Hong Kong University Press

In Chapter 12, Acosta contributes her own hand-drawn, manga-esque version of a scene from Yang’s American Born Chinese while Jaqueline Berndt discusses how it depicts differences between the two genres, especially manga’s ability to highlight characters’ emotions and their private interpersonal relations, through technical and artistic means. “Manga-fying American Born Chinese” demonstrates and argues how these artistic approaches invite affective participation over critical observation, the latter more typical of Western comics scholarship.
