(This post cannot be done without some spoilers for Providence #7. You’ve been warned.)
We don’t have a lot of background on this, but a handful of ghoul photographs have emerged online related to the final panel of Providence #7, where Pittman develops his photograph “The Police Strike: A Settlement.” We’re hoping to bring a more full story soon, but what we know is that the ghoul prosthetics were created by Susanna Peretz of SusannaPeretzFx, who has worked with Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins on several productions.
John Higgs mentioned that Alan Moore has, possibly jokingly, called this “the most expensive panel in comic history.” And it very well could be. We’ll soon gather and share more of the story of the prosthetics, photographer, and people behind that dramatic final panel.
Frequent Moore collaborator photographer and filmmaker Mitch Jenkins’ website has a half-dozen higher-resolution photos from the same photo shoot, including some shots of the policeman by himself. Check them out.
