    Herb Trimpe Big Little Book #5782-2 "The Incredible Hulk: Lost In Time" Cover Painting and Complete 119 Interior Illustrations Original Art, with Production Stat Cover Layout, and Original Script Group (Whitman, 1980). The pocket-sized Big Little Books delivered great stories and images for young readers in a compact package! The ink and watercolor cover alone gives you the Hulk, a T-Rex, and a damsel-in-distress! The 6.75" x 8" image area of the illustration board also includes the original art for the Hulk's portrait which appears on the book's spine. The 248 page text story included 119 spot illustrations also by Hulk-master Herb Trimpe. The ink over graphite images each have an image area of 5.25" x 6.5" on Bristol board measuring 6.25" x 7.5". The group includes three bonus items: The original typed script by writer Don Glut (with editorial mark-ups), the production stat layout of the front and back cover, and a copy of the printed book itself. After the fact, someone attempted to recreate the production layout that might have been used to produce this book. That includes pasting low-res copies of all interior text and pasting the original artwork directly to a larger Bristol board (13" x 17.5") in a 4-up layout. (i.e. four book pages per Bristol board) It is not known if these can be safely removed from these boards. Overall everything is in Very Good condition.
