Bjørk Matias Friis is the award-nominated creator of TALL TALES OF MIDGARD. The story, which centers around the thrall Root, is a humouristic take on the viking age where the gods supposedly walked the earth and caused havoc.
Friis masterfully combines humour and historical fact to tell the story of how badly things can go, when mere mortals are tricked into meddling in the affairs of the gods.
If Loki walks among us mortals in this day and age, Friis is surely a relation and he is a revelation on the Danish comics scene.
