Carlsen Comics, 1991.

The two mightiest gods in Asgard are Thor, the God of Thunder, and Tyr, the God of War. But who is the mightier? To answer this question our friends travel to the outermost part of Asgard, where their friendship is put to a gruelling test during Thor's attempts to land the Midgard Serpent.

The Serpent in the Abyss is a recounting of the myth about Thor's attempts to fish the Midgard Serpent out of the depths of the ocean. This comic album is based on The Prose (Snorri's) Edda and the "Lay of Hymir", which also tells about the god Tyr's kinship with the giant Hymir.

The Serpent in the Abyss has so far been published in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Spanish.
