An immoral salvage crew employs a novel method to remove an Alien nest from a valuable shipwreck.
Pig is an interesting short story. The plot revolves round an unscrupulous crew of misfits determined to salvage a valuable shipwreck the only problem is that there is an Alien nest nearby. Here again we have a story that revolves around its human characters and is all the better for it. None of the crew are likeable, nor are they meant to be, the only crew-member with morals is sacrificed by his crew-mates to achieve their goals. This is not meant to be a serious story and there is a nice streak of dark humour running through it, including a nice twist at the ending.
The artwork is suitably grubby and I liked the aesthetic feel, the artist conveys the feel of a messy, badly run salvage ship.
Pig is a decent story, nothing exceptional but solid enough.
