Whatever happened to Big Numbers?

Over on facebook today a friend of mine, PJ, posted a link that has artist Bill Sienkiewicz, talking about what happened to Big Numbers, a series he worked on with Alan Moore, of which only three issues were ever completed (only two issues were ever published). I think that if Big Numbers had ever been completed it would have been one of the most amazing works ever in the sequential art medium we call comics.

The following piece by Bill Sienkiewicz is long, but it's great, honest writing on what stalled Big Numbers and has some of the most descriptive passages that I've read about what it's like working with wordsmith master, Alan Moore. Here's the link:
