The Bride of Thrymr by saramarconato The Bride of Thrymr by saramarconato
The drawing represents a funny norse myth. The Lord of Ice Giants, Thrymr, stole Thor's Mjollnir. If Thor want it back, Asi should give to him Freya as wife. Heimdallr had a good idea: dress Thor as a Freya bride and Loki as his maid for getting back Mjollnir. Obviously, Thor is not much enthusiast to dress like a woman...

They are saying:
(English)
Thor: "Gods will say I am transvestite!"
Loki: "Do you prefer Giants conquer Asgardr with your precious Mjollnir?"

(Swedish, by Blondbraid )
Tor: "Gudarna kommer säga att jag är en transvestit!"
Loke: "Föredrar du att jättarna erövrar Asgård med din kära Mjölner?"

If there is someone who can translate the dialogue in Norwegian/Danish/Icelandic or Ancient Norse, I will be very grateful :D Please write it in the comments below :)

It's a great shame this story won't get adapted by Marvel.

Hi Blondbraid :) I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this idea. I love a lot both Marvel and Norse Mythology, but if I have to choose, I will choose the last. The reason is because the Asgardr Gods' adventures in mythology are something holy and honourable and usually explain why something is here or happens ( world and its creation, death, evil...), philosophical and ethics teachings for people and a lot more. Thor, Odin, Loki etc are powerful forces above humans to respect and to be afraid. In Marvel comics (with all their mythological mistakes), however, the holiness disappear: Loki and Thor are characters in their rule not so different from a Thanos or a Tony Stark (in a story too, we discover they are aliens that believe to be Nordic gods). I really despise some comical scenes in Marvel because they don't respect the divinity of Asgardr gods. Yeah, I know someone will say "Who cares?", but for me is quite important, because most people see only the unholy side of them, forgetting they were worshiped for centuries as real powerful entities (today they are worshiped by some people, too). So, all that long speech to say that it isn't a good idea for me because most people will see only the funny side and not the deeper side (the nine worlds risks chaos and destruction). So I tend to relate to Marvel and mythology as two parallels worlds and the last is a lot more important for me. Sorry for the long reply :D

Yeah, I understand why anyone interested in real mythology would dislike the Marvel version, and it doesn't have much in common with the actual asatro,
but at the same time, there's always hope that at least some comic book geeks will take the time to check out the original tales after reading the Marvel comics about Thor.

Anyway, I'd say that the two lines above would look like this in Swedish:
Tor: "Gudarna kommer säga att jag är en transvestit!"
Loke: "Föredrar du att jättarna erövrar Asgård med din kära Mjölner?"

Yeah, I hope so :D In my case, I discovered mythology before, thanks to a mythology book for kids in my school library. Then, during teens, I read Edda because I wanted to understand better the myth. Then the love: I am considered quite strange by people around me because I prefer Nordic world instead of Greek and Latin world which dominate around me. But I love more a Thor than a Zeus, so it isn't a problem for me.

Thank you so much for your translation :D It is better for them :) I have update the intro to the artwork.

Happy to be of help!
Since I'm from Sweden, and both my parents work with archaeology, I practically grew up with visiting rune-stones and reading Norse mythology,
though I never managed to learn reading runes. :)

Wow, that is so fascinating La la la la Lucky you :D A lot of people here in Metal festivals brag to to read, understand and translate runes. Most of them are liars. I openly say I know better their magical and divinatory meaning :)
