Big Numbers #3 (with cover?)

Pádraig Ó Méalóid has, with Alan Moore's permission, posted scans of photocopies of the complete 40-page story from the unpublished BIG NUMBERS #3. Fully lettered, too, unlike the unlettered photos of several pages floating around before.

Be warned, though, that there has long been a lot of bullshit going around about what exactly these pages are, and what exactly the fate of BIG NUMBERS was, so take the pages for what they are and don't believe anything you read about them or the book in general without questioning your source.

My understanding (and apply my caveat in the previous paragraph doubly to me) is that this third issue is primarily Sienkiewicz art, with perhaps varying levels of assistance from Al Columbia, and that the issue which Columbia took over was #4, and that's the one where the fate of the artwork is much rumoured about and in dispute.

(I'm not sure if the art above was from an ad for #3 or was to be the cover or what)
