Herb Trimpe ~ A Tribute

Trimpe by Davis
Herb Trimpe by Jack Davis

Herb Trimpe, one of my favorite Marvel Comics Artists of all time passed away in April 2015. I loved his run on the Incredible Hulk and virtually anything else he put his hand to during the late 60s and early 70s. I offer up a gallery my favorite Trimpe covers from that era as well as a wonderful video of Herb sketching and another of a fun interview and this tribute video we put together for YouTube.

Herb’s style was unique and instantly recognizable, incorporating the power of Jack Kirby with the flourish of Steve Ditko. He was a fan of the EC Comics of the 1950s and it showed. He defined the Hulk, establishing one of Marvel’s cornerstone characters during the Silver Age of comics. Included are a page from a piece he did for Gloria Steinem in Cosmopolitan and a cover of the Rolling Stone from 1971.
