The comic industry lost one of its most beloved creators today with Herb Trimpe passing away Monday at the age of 75. Herb recently spent the weekend as a guest at East Coast Comic Con in New Jersey before returning home and passing away.
Herb is credited for co-creating Wolverine , a character introduced during his long tenure as the penciler on THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Herb's amazing credits include G.I. JOE, GODZILLA, SHOGUN WARRIORS and drew almost every Marvel character at one time or another.
Trimpe served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War and served as a chaplain at ground zero following the 9/11 Terror Attacks.
I saw Herb at so many shows and enjoyed every interaction we had and each time, I walked away finding out something else about this amazing guy!
