    Not sure about the spelling of the Mayan names in panels 8 and 9.

    David, I believe that you have “Itcamna” the sun correct, but it should be “Ixcanel” the moon. My new monitor is a bit clearer than the old one used to be.

    @JanCinLV

    Actually, the names are Itzamná and Ixchel. At least, that’s what I came up with on a number of sites, such as here. Other than that, I found the text more legible than usual.

    Thanks for disciphering the scribbled text, it’s so frustrating that we can’t read it!
