Valhalla 6 - The Golden Apples, 1990

Drawn and narrated by Peter Madsen
Based on a story by Per Vadmand, Hans Rancke-Madsen, Peter Madsen and Henning Kure
Colourist: Søren Håkansson
Interpresse, 1990.

Loki sees an opportunity to make fast profit when the rich giant Thiassi reveals his insterest in the goddess Idun and her golden apples. Of course there's the small problem of making Idun agree, not to mention the fact that the other gods are likely to become sore just because they will turn into old dodderers if they no longer get apples from Idun. But worst of all, Thiassi's payment is not forthcoming and his daughter, Skadi, is looking for a man just like Loki.

The Golden Apples is based on The Prose (Snorri's) Edda. The comic album is a recounting of the myths of Loki betraying the goddess Idun to the giant Thiassi, of Loki's helping Thor to free her again later, and of Skadi's claiming compensation for the death of her father and getting to marry the god Njord.

The Golden Apples has so far been published in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and German.
