Ever wind up collecting something because you were given one and then another, and suddenly everyone assumed you really wanted to collect those things and started supplying you with them? This happened to Marie Javins when she first started working at Marvel Comics. Because she was from a cow-country school in Ohio (Antioch), a comic book artist gave her a cartoon of a cow. She politely posted it on her office wall, and before she knew it, other artists were penning cows for her and presenting them as gifts. Not one to waste the gift of art, Marie posted them on the Web.

    The site soon earned recognition of comic-related Web sites. If you are a fan of cows or comics, check out the 30 pictures and the amusing guestbook.
