Herbert W. “Herb” Trimpe, best known as the 1970’s artist on The Incredible Hulk and as the first artist to draw Wolverine for publication, passed away last night at the age of 75.
Besides his work on Hulk, Herb Trimpe worked on a wide variety of books from 1962 on including The Defenders, Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., G.I. Joe Special Missions, Godzilla, Shogun Warriors, and Kid Colt Outlaw. The father of four loved coming out and meeting fans of his work, and had attended the East Coast Comicon just this past weekend.
Our condolences to his family and friends. It just won’t be the same without him around.
