Making a Splash: Herb Trimpe's Hulk, Part Four
Well, Groove-ophiles, Ol' Groove is sure that by now you've heard the sad news that Herb Trimpe passed away this past Monday at the age of 75. We've rapped about Herb quite often here in Groove City. Not only about his benchmark Incredible Hulk work, but his time on Godzilla, Ant-Man (in Marvel Feature), and his cool covers. We've even gotten to spend time on some of his most memorable art jobs (like this one or this one). Wish I'd gotten around to finishing up the splashes for Herb's legendary Incredible Hulk run (issues 167- 193, June 1973-August 1975) while he was still around, but that's the way it goes, innit? Here's to ya, Happy Herb! Thank you for all the years of awesome artistry!
