    That was good Tim and thorough. I did not know that Herb Trimpe had co-created Wolverine with Len Wein. That is a landmark achievement. I have seen Trimpe’s artwork before and made the mistake of thinking it to be okay, but never realized him to be so historical to Marvel. Maybe I should reconsider guys like him and GIl Kane.

    Trimpe and guys like him got lost in the mix when comic artists became more important than the characters and stories. I probably read every Hulk he drew. Guys like him were the backbone of comics.

      John, You are right. For years, Trimpe’s depiction of the Hulk was THE look for the character. And there are times when I think of the Hulk, I think of him. It was a shame he was pushed out, but there was no questioning his skill and popularity in the 1970s. I was fortunate enough to meet him once at the Mid-Ohio-Con and heard his comments about 9/11. It was obvious that he felt it deeply. We have lost a deeply spiritual man.
