Big Numbers

In the late 1980s or so, Alan Moore started a new publishing company and began writing an epic comic book story about and American mall developer building a shopping plaza in England. Oh also, the Mandelbrot set was involved (fractals and all that). I was psyched! Even better, the art was by Bill Sienkiewicz! Amazing! Their previous collaboration was a short parable about American imperialism that involved a bald eagle drinking in a bar.

Anyway, only two issues of "Big Numbers" (the mall story) were published although stories always mention that Sienkiewicz quit the project (schedule problems) and his assistant at the time, Al Columbia took over.

Well, turns out pages for issue 3 were completed and never saw the light of day. Until now. And on the internet. They're here.
