With sadness and watered eyes, I report that American artist Herbert "Herb" Trimpe has passed away at the age of 75.
Herb had a very lengthy run in the Incredible Hulk comic from the late 60s to the mid 70s.
Herb drew more than 100 Hulk related stories in the pages of "Incredible Hulk", Hulk annuals, and The Defenders, definitely one of the longest runs in the character's history.
Trimpe's most famous comic is Incredible Hulk #181
(1974) where Wolverine is introduced to the comics world.
Note: Wolverine first appeared in the last page of the previous comic, #180, which was also penciled by Trimpe. Incredible Hulk #160
, where Hulk fights the Tiger Shark in the Niagara Falls, is a favorite of mine, one of the first Hulk comics I ever had.
Rest in Peace, Herbe Trimpe. And THANKS for your legacy.
