With a career that spanned more than 45 years, Trimpe worked on a wide variety of the comic industry’s most recognizable characters, notably an era-defining seven-year run on “The Incredible Hulk” in the 1970s. That run included “The Incredible Hulk” #181, which marked the debut of Wolverine; plus the first appearances of Hulk supporting characters including Jim Wilson and Doc Samson, both of whom Trimpe co-created with writer Roy Thomas. In 2014, a page of original art from “The Incredible Hulk” #180, depicting the first cameo appearance of Wolverine, sold for a record-tying $657,250 at auction.
Back in my day, Herb Trimpe = Hulk.
Rest in peace.
