EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Herb Trimpe’s HULK Artist’s Edition

The late denizen of the Marvel Bullpen’s work is being celebrated in this IDW edition.


Getting an Artist’s Edition is like a special award. If you’re getting the treatment, it means you’ve left a stamp on comics.

Sadly, Herb Trimpe, who died earlier this year, didn’t get to see this published, but the rest of us get to enjoy the fruits of his labor, bittersweet as that is.

Herb Trimpe’s The Incredible Hulk Artist’s Edition is due out later this year and we’re especially proud to present you with the FIRST LOOK at the oversized album — 12 full pages of classic artwork.

This, by the way, is the second installment of our ongoing look at IDW’s archives series, including the Artist’s Editions and imprints like Yoe Books and the Library of American Comics.

In our first part, I talked with IDW prez Greg Goldstein about the Artist’s Editions, with a special eye on what’s to come in the series. If you haven’t read it yet, click here.
