The House Of Horrors!
Memory is a slippery thing these days, but if mine can be trusted then the first time I ran across the artistry of the late Herb Trimpe was inside the vintage Big Little Book starring the Fantastic Four titled "The House of Horrors".
Marvel Comics was swelling up and the FF were on ABC television in a series which did a remarkably good job of translating the comics to screen. I didn't quite realize that because I was just into the cartoon as a kid with the comics still in my future. But I did pick up this Big Little Book tie-in which was ghosted by Herb Trimpe along with some re-used artwork by Jack "King" Kirby. Longtime Marvel artist John Verpoorten handled the inks.
To get a good look at this classic, check this out.
