Cattle die
kinsmen die
all men are mortal.
Words of praise
will never perish
nor a noble name.

Sorry I have not scantranslated these scans. I might do that in the future but right now I have only time for an intro. But feel free to ask questions, and I will try to answer them



See also here in scans-daily the first six comicbooks, who is scan translated, under the tag Creator: Peter Madsen

This is the last comic in Peter Madsens's Valhalla aerie. And logical enough this time it's about Ragnarok, the gods end.

In the comic we are mainly following two young human siblings, the girl Rødskva and the boy Tjalfe. Tjalfe has ended his ended servitude / schooling with Thor. And has to find his Fylgje, which is an animal spirit, who can help him travel between the worlds. Tjalfes find out later on, that it is a cute kitten, and not fearsome bear as he hopped for. But they find out on that quest, that the Godess Freja house has been raided and destroyed, and there is no trace of Freja. This is very bad, because it's Freja who ends the winter, and without her the world will freeze into a Fimbul winter.

Odin sets out search parties for Freja. Loke gets the quest to find the Fenris Wulf as it have disappeared from the island it was on. The girl Rødskva have had a vision about the Fenris wolf swallowing the sun, but she can't get anybody to listen to her. So instead she follows Loke on his quest for the Fenris wulf. She and Loke finds the Fenris Wolf in a strangely snow free area, full of jotuns. They find out of that the leader is Surt an old drinking body to Loke. So he tells them freely, that he trained the Fenris wulf, to break in Freja house and kidnap her and bring her to Surt. Who then stole the Freja powers, and then transferred them into his sword Lævatien, and this is why his area is free of sun. Afterwards Surt gave Freja to the Fenris Wolf, who eat her whole.

Loke tricks Surt to Attack Valhalla with the wulf, as he reasons that would be the easiest way to get the wolf back home and the Gods can easily beat a bunch of Jotuns. But the plan goes somewhat wrong, as Surt gets an idea from Rødskva how to get his magical sword with him over the ice. And with the Sword he drives the Midgaards Wurm in front of his fleet, on the attack on Valhalla.

These are always fun. Such a pity that I've let my Swedish rust so much, though, can't really tell what's being said in much of this. Maybe I'll hunt for the Finnish version in the library later.

If you COULD translate these in the future, it would be much appreciated. The art is gorgeous, and epic stuff is evidently going on, but it would help a great deal if I understood a bit better just what that epic stuff was.

THANKS! Much obliged. The story reads much better now - although I'm not sure whether Freyja ever had that particular role in actual Norse mythology...
