Publisher's SummaryEdit

Stitch and his band of space pirates have designs on looting the wreckage of a crashed ore tug before the rightful owners can arrive to salvage the valuable cargo. The problem: a nest of Aliens has set up housekeeping near the wrecked tug. Stitch's solution: a cute little pig carrying a low-yield nuke wired to a remote detonator. Not since Babe has so much rested on the outcome of a porker's performance. How about a little bacon with your Alien eggs?

Reprint HistoryEdit

Aliens: Pig was eventually collected as part of Aliens Omnibus: Volume 6 in December 2008.

The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on August 7, 2013, reusing Chris Scalf's cover art.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Pig writer Chuck Dixon also wrote the Predator story Predator: The Pride at Nghasa. In the comics field, Dixon is perhaps most known for his work with DC Comics and in particular for his work with Batman in his time as writer of the flaship title Detective Comics.
