Nordic Halloween


An early Halloween comic. Idea by Sbaldur.

America is dressed as the Marvel god/superhero Thor, while the rest are dressed as the version of the gods from the comic "Valhalla". Sweden is dressed as Odin.

One superhero that for sure will never be taken seriously in Scandinavia is Thor. Ever. :XD:

"Valhalla" is a re-interpretation of the old myths. For example, even though he’s a jackass, Loki doesn’t turn more and more evil. It’s just the other gods who trust him less and less because he keep causing trouble, and in the end they start blaming him for things he didn’t do.
In the story about Balder’s death he doesn’t intend for Balder to die. He just wanted to make a fool of Balder’s brother Hod by making him think he could hurt his brother with a mistletoe. So Loki was just as surprised as everybody else when it killed Balder.
Neither did he betray the gods during Ragnarok. The jotuns captured him without the gods knowing, so when the battle started they saw him on the jotuns’ side. He tried to get over to the gods, but was attacked by Heimdal.

In 1986 the comic got turned into a cartoon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNX_Heix390

Hey, us Americans with a shred of literacy are just as disgusted every time Marvel Thor spouts mangled Elizabethan English.

That's like Lady Deathstrike speaking thick Hawaiian Pidgin.

Denmark fits Loki perfectly like Finland fits Tyr, the god of war with that attitude. Aaaaand then there's Iceland who makes a perfect Balder, beautiful as him

Wouldn't say Loki turn more evil in the myths, that really depends on which Christian writer you read. The unknown writer of the poetic Edda show Loki as a trickster god. Snorri Sturluson choose to use Loki as antagonist in his prosaic Edda. Saxo thought all the gods were evil, but mostly ignored Loki and just wrote him as an annoying joker.

So, here's my story: I'm a simple dane. I like this site, just like any of you! It was first today that i found out that there is a comment section! AND THEN I KNEW WHAT I HAD TO DO! I kept checking the comics. Commeting isn't for me. That was, until i found out i could get a special character! Now this message will be spammed on as many of the comics as i possible can..
