Aliens: Pig is a one-shot comic book that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in March 1997. It was written by Chuck Dixon, illustrated by Henry Flint, inked by Andrew Pepoy, colored by Cary Porter, lettered by Steve Dutro and edited by Ian Stude and Randy Stradley, with cover art by Chris Scalf.
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?
Aliens: Pig was eventually collected as part of Aliens Omnibus: Volume 6 in December 2008.
