Comic book artist Herb Trimpe has passed away.

His name may not be as big as some of the characters he’s drawn, but he is still one of the legends of the industry. He is the first artist to draw Wolverine in the Incredible Hulk comic run. He is also known as the co-creator of Captain Britain and his sister, Psylocke, which recently made news when Olivia Munn was announced to play her for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie.

His works can also be found on G.I. Joe, Star Wars, B.P.R.D. and Savage Dragon.

Editor-in-Chief of Marvel, Axel Alonso, had this to say:

To me, no artist is as synonymous with the Incredible Hulk as Herb Trimpe, who gave the Jade Giant a sense of pathos and scale that set the bar for every artist that followed him. Like a Hulk-punch, Trimpe’s art truly exploded off the page. Comics lost a giant.

Rest in peace, Herb Trimpe.
