"The F.O.O.G (Friends of Old Gerber) Portfolio was a benefit collection released in 1982 to help offset writer Steve Gerber's legal battle with Marvel Comics over ownership of his most famous creation, Howard The Duck. To help raise funds for Gerber's legal fund, artist Dave Sim contacted comic book artists and asked them to contribute to a benefit portfolio. Gerber and Marvel settled their differences in late 1982 and by all accounts funds raised by the F.O.O.G (Friends of Old Gerber) Portfolio did indeed help the writer offset some of his legal costs."
