From running the first photostat machine at Marvel Comics to being the first to illustrate Wolverine, no other member of the Marvel Bullpen has had such a varied and remarkable career as Herb Trimpe.

This book chronicles the life and art of Trimpe through his own voice, as well as the voices of friends and colleagues. Their testimony to his talent and his legacy of artwork leave no wonder why he has been dubbed ‘The Incredible Herb Trimpe.’
