Valhalla 14 - The Wall, 2007
Drawn and narrated by Peter Madsen
The name is Shoe-Boy... Skirnir Shoe-Boy. This is the secret identity Tjalfi is assigned when he is sent to Utgard. His mission: To persuade the giant Gymirs daughter, Gerd, to go on a date with the god Freyr. It might have been an easy task, but right now there are rumours about Ragnarok approaching. And a huge army of giants is assembling in Gymisgard!
But does the giant's daughter want to meet with a god, one of their enemies? And how did Loki become the mother of Odin's horse? This is a story about impossible love!
Valhalla 14 is a retelling of the Sayings of Skirnir, a story about Freyr, the fertility god, who sends his servant, Skirnir Shoe-Boy, to Utgard in order to ask Gymir's daughter Gerd to marry Freyr. The Masterbuilder's story from the Prose (Snorri' s) Edda about how the gods try to build a wall around Asgard - and how Loki becomes the mother of Sleipnir, Odin's horse, is also woven into the tale
"Muren" has so far been published in Danish, Swedish and Norwegian.
