This is an appendix post for the article "All Quacked Up: Steve Gerber, Marvel Comics, and Howard the Duck" (click here).
Below is an April 30, 1985 letter by Michael Hobson, Marvel Vice-President in Charge of Publishing. It was addressed to Steve Gerber's attorney Henry W. Holmes, Jr. The letter offers conditional acceptance of a Howard the Duck story script Gerber submitted. Gerber withdrew the script in response to the publisher's proposed revisions.
Hobson's letter also includes references to the terms of Gerber and Marvel’s September 24, 1982 “consulting agreement.”
