Dear Readers:
The Moon Prince will be posting “reruns” for the next year or so. This is because I'm currently revising the older pages of the book so the color and style of the drawings are consistent from beginning to end. As a result, the “reruns” are actually quite different from the way they looked when I first posted them years ago. I hope you enjoy seeing these newly spiffed-up pages, and I hope you'll stick around to see the last part of The Moon Prince, starting in the fall of 2018.
Your pal,

  1. At least it's with rhyme, if not with rhythm and guitar...
    Panel 1: "Cuique sub oculis viridibus amplisque viam lucet" (For everyone under his eyes green and wide he lights the way)
    Panel 2: "nosque ex nocte aeterna in lumen telluris ducet! (and will lead us out of eternal night into earthlight!)
    Panel 3: "Ita fiat!" (So it's supposed to happen!) [Amen = so be it]
    Panel 4: "Domine, te cum propheta tuo ad epulum nostrum invito!" (Dear lord, I invite you together with your prophet to our feast!) [That's about as polite as Romans could get. Their language really shows their farming origins]

  2. Wonderful and concise translations, Norder! Thank you as always!
