R.I.P. Herb Trimpe

Sadly, we lost the great Herb Trimpe yesterday. He was 75 years old.

Herb Trimpe was an excellent comic book artist for his entire career. He was still doing fine work right up until his death.

Our pal Scott wrote an excellent write-up on Herb Trimpe's underrated greatness here.

I featured a number of his stunning comic book covers here.

Herb was a funny guy. In an old Comic Book Legends Revealed, I detailed a rather randy joke he sneaked into an issue of G.I. Joe during the 1990s.

Later in the decade, Trimpe changed his style to appear closer to artists like Rob Liefeld. People thought Marvel forced him to do so, but in an old Comic Book Legends Revealed, he told me that he did it on his own volition.

He was not only a great artist, but in all of my interactions with him over the years he was also a sweet, nice man. He will be greatly missed.
