A one issue story written and illustrated by John Byrne, this story was originally meant to accompany The Art of John Byrne. It also includes the three page "Critical Words," describing his inspiration from a still photo from the original Alien in an issue of Heavy Metal. Byrne also writes that he originally intended for the woman in the story, who he modeled after actress Valerie Bertinelli, was intended to be completely naked. He gave her a loincloth in order to make the story more marketable. He reveals in "Critical Words" that the male character's name is Snow.
