According to Laura Anh Williams’s “Queering Manga: Eating Queerly in 12 Days,” Asian Americanness is usually associated with heterosexuality while queerness is associated with whiteness. June Kim’s OEL manga 12 Days, however, queers manga tradition to valorize the same-sex love at the novel’s core. Its disorienting temporalities and often confusing visual style re-locate it within queer time and place.
