Marvel Pays Tribute To Herb Trimpe

HerbTrimpeSpideyLongtime Marvel artist Herb Trimpe, one of their workhorses, passed away last month at the age of 75.

Back then I commented:

Sad news today. Longtime Marvel artist Herb Trimpe, who drew the first Wolverine in Hulk #181 in 1974, has passed away at age 75.

Trimpe was mostly known for his Hulk and early G.I. Joe work, but he also worked on Spidey stories in Marvel Team-Up and an arc on Spectacular Spider-Man, in which he co-created the Spot.

Today, brings word that Marvel plans to pay tribute to the late artist.


I understand that in next week’s Marvel’s comics, the publisher will be running a tribute page to Herb Trimpe, the comic book artist who worked at the publisher for decades, with the headline “In memory of a giant among legends”.

Featuring Captain America, Hulk, Daredevil and the Human Torch, it uses this photo by Luigi Novi.

    I'm glad to hear this. Marvel needs to recognize older artists/creators who contributed so much to the field. Plus, this gets the names of these creators to the newer and younger generation. They can check out the work for themselves and see that the writers/artists of today are standing on the shoulders of these giants. Kudos Marvel!
