Ads - BirthQuake Lurches On!

I found and scanned this interesting advertisement for the BirthQuake event. BirthQuake was an ill conceived sales event that was largely ignored by readers. In response to the indifferent sales Valiant put out this tongue in cheek print advertisement calling attention to the fact that they were paying incredible sums of money to top tier comic talent by showcasing the Valiant characters in the styles of the great artists of the last century - X-O Manowar by Salvador Dali, Bloodshot by Pablo Picasso; Turok by Paul Gauguin, Solar by Georges Seurat; and gag artists for Ninjak and Magnus Robot Fighter.
