Drawn and narrated by Peter Madsen
Based on a story by Per Vadmand, Hans Rancke-Madsen,
Peter Madsen and Henning Kure
Colourist: Søren Håkansson
Produced by Henning Kure
Interpresse, 1987.

The shrewd Loki is not always so shrewd. One night he makes a bet with the giants that he can easily teach Quark - a giant child notorious for playing mischievous tricks - how to behave. Before long, however, Loki is forced to realise that he has overestimated his abilities. He leaves it to Thor's servants Tjalvi and Röskva to teach Quark manners. But can two mere humans really do a job that gods and giants have given up?
The animated feature film Valhalla is based on The Story of Quark and The Journey to Utgard-Loki.

The Story of Quark is the only Valhalla album that does not recount Norse myths. It is about the consequences of the young giant Quark's stay in Asgard. The story continues in the next album in the series. The whole story was used in the animated feature film Valhalla.

The Story of Quark has so far been published in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Faroese, Finnish, Dutch, German, French and Indonesian.
