Comparing Fed, ECB and BoJ balance sheets in this crisis

I have been waiting to read something like this for a while now. We know enough about Fed Balance sheet and its expansion (see Bernanke’s recent excellent speech on the same; He is just too good at summarising complex ideas). But very little research etc is there on other central banks balance sheets.

ECB in its Oct Monthly Bulletin, has a nice analysis and comparison of Balance sheets of Fed, ECB and BoJ. Fed had the smallest balance sheet before the crisis and has the largest now.
