Hate to disappoint you but Brain Powered was NOT created as a rebuttal to Eva. I have an interview with creator Yoshiyuki Tomino where he says that he had already been making the series when Eva came out, and knew the comparisons would be there. He then goes on to state that he never made this as a response to Eva, it just happened to come out around the same time hence the comparisons.
If by high art you mean it's fun to smoke pot and look at Mike Mignola's art, I'm in total agreement.
