The $55,000 Original Cover Art of J Scott Campbell, on Display in New York City

This weekend saw the opening of the J Scott Campbell exhibition in the Metropolis Gallery, where people can enter, see his original artwork framed and, if they are feeling particularly flush, buy work straight from the frames.

The priciest piece is Campbell's pentatych cover piece for Batman #50, consisting of 5 covers in one, measuring 51" x 17" and featuring Batman, Catwoman, Black Canary, Huntress, Batwoman, Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Penguin, Harley Quinn and the Joker. All for a measily $55,000 which if you divided by five, works at a much more reasonable-sounding $11,000 each.

After all, this Mary Jane and the Fantastic Four cover goes for $16,000 by itself.
