Some of the most cosmic connections in the Marvel Universe happened when the Guardians of the Galaxy went to visit the Collector, played by Benicio del Toro. We already showed you art of the most surprising character in his collection. But here's concept art of Cosmo the dog, and some other stuff.

The artwork below comes from artist Sebastian Meyer, who also worked on Green Lantern. And it includes the above piece showing what happens when a woman touches the Infinite Gem — but also a better look at Eson the Searcher, a Celestial, wielding the Gem in action. And Cosmo the dog! And some more alien women, whom we never saw on screen. Our favorites are below — there's more over at Meyer's site. [via]
