The Incredible HULK! 1979 Rare Origin Story! Herb Trimpe! Marvel!

I've covered the captivating contents of the nifty 1979 Marvel HULK Calendar before, but here is something very special. The same colossal calendar sported this special frontispiece, a then-new re-telling of the awe-inspiring origin of the ever-incredible Hulk! Drawn by ol' Greenskin's main artist of the 70s, Herb Trimpe, this fun little re-cap has never been reprinted anywhere (as far as I know), and is a nice little rarely-seen treat! 1979 was the period of "Hulkmania," with the live-action CBS TV show in high gear, and Hulk's misshapen mug appearing on more kinds of merchandise than you could shake an errant gamma ray at!

BONUS! Click below to enlarge this pic of Herb Trimpe, deep in concentration at his drawing desk, in the far-famed Marvel Bullpen, circa 1970!
