Fun Facts

  • Beaver is a liar.
  • Aliens who steal left socks are not very bright, but very polite nonetheless.
  • The Socks User Manual is very thick.
  • Socks often do not often come with a manual at all.
  • In Panels 2 and 3, we can see Gruglarr clearly has more than two 'arms.' However, The other alien appears not to have extra arms.
  • In the Socks User Manual, Beaver and Steve are shown in the exact positions that they appear to be standing in at the time the alien checks their sockiness-status.
  • Beavers, lizards, bees and windmills are NOT SOCKS


  • The bee in the book looks very similar to the Bee in Comic 38. Probably because it's a bee.
