OEL Manga, short for Original English Language Manga, are graphic novels and comic books that utilize Manga techniques (or try to, anyway) and were originally written in English, instead of Japanese. Since these are generally targeted at North American, Australian and British readers, they are typically read left-to-right like other Western works. (But not always)
Note that some purists may not consider Original English Language manga as "real" manga, as the latter is sometimes considered an exclusively Japanese creation. As usual, purists are all about the semantics.
