I really wish I could have met him at one of his convention appearances. Rest in peace Mr. Trimpe.
See a complete list of his work on ComicBookDB.
New York Post --
Prominent comic-book artist and Wolverine co-creator Herb Trimpe died at his home in upstate Hurley, N.Y., on Monday. He was 75.
Trimpe is credited as being the first comic-book artist to sketch the Wolverine character for publication back in 1974, when the clawed crusader made his debut in an issue of The Incredible Hulk.
Before he started earning a living at his trade, Trimpe served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War. He enrolled at Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts upon returning home.
In the weeks and months after the 9/11 terror attacks, Trimpe, an Episcopalian deacon, worked at the World Trade Center site, serving as a chaplain. He also worked to clear away rubble.
His work after 9/11 earned him the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award, an award given to artists in comics and animators who work tirelessly in their private lives to serve society.
He had just been meeting and greeting fans in New Jersey over the weekend at the East Coast Comicon at the Meadowlands Expo Center.
“He enjoyed people recognizing his work and seeing his fans,” his wife said. “We had a wonderful life together.”

|Back on March 28, my wife and I went to Eggshelland!|
|Easter morning baskets. Lots of candy and a few packs of trading cards.|
|My wife tried a new way to color eggs. Shake an egg in rice with food color. It makes a speckled egg.|
|I went the traditional method with a good ol' Paas kit.|
|My wife made ham and her famous beans for Easter dinner at my in-laws.|
|My mother-in-law made deviled egg peeps.|
|The food was messy, but very good!|
How was your Easter?
Happy Easter everyone!
What's your plans for today? I hope to color some eggs this morning (I boiled them yesterday). Also, we are making a ham and beans for Easter dinner at my in-laws. I hope everybody has a swell day!

This past Saturday I went to a LEGO Store for the first time. I was amazed! I'm kinda glad I don't collect LEGO, I would be seriously broke! Besides all of the really cool Marvel, DC and Star Wars sets, the store has a build-your-own-mini-figure station, a wall of buckets filled with individual pieces you can buy and professionally built scenes and vehicles. I did buy a Mini-Hulk key chain. The only way to get the big Hulk is to buy the sets and I don't wanna.
