BOOM! Comics brings you another Peanuts classic, but a different one which contains our lovable dog in space in Snoopy: A Beagle of Mars the graphic novel.

This Peanuts graphic novel brings you a continuation of Snoopy in Space from the Apple TV plus original series, but somehow the story comes up with a different approach which is that Snoopy was blasted off to space and now he himself has landed on Mars. That’s kind of new for an idea to send a dog to space, the story is written by Jason Cooper and some of the artists are drawn by Vicki Scott and Robert Pope. This graphic novel contains two stories along the way which is “Mission (Out of ) Control” and “Snoopy: A Beagle of Mars.” And the story goes so far as almost like the Apple TV + series itself at the time.

The front cover shows that Snoopy is traveling on Mars as he poses like the caveman Spongebob pose meme with a serious look on his face. However right on the background, it shows a shadow of an alien who is about to jump on Snoopy. But does it look like Spike the dog or an alien on the shadow, who knows? From the start of the story, the birds are going apeshit on the NASA station as if something’s going on out there, while Snoopy is traveling around Mars, which possibly that he’s in the town of Needles where Spike and Naomi found him wandering around and took him in some clinic. Charlie Brown might think that Snoopy ran off somewhere, but when and how did he run off somewhere in the first place? Well, either way, the first thing that Snoopy discovered Mars is that he’s hallucinating or something, the birds however at home is calculating what experiments that they want to use so they can travel in order to find Snoopy at Needles. What will happen if they find Snoopy?

The story of Snoopy at Mars is probably the most imagery thing that you’ll ever go for, even if it is Mars, then when will Snoopy is going end up somewhere in the desert? Other than that, what kind of disease he had contained? He may be an astronaut, but he had some wild adventures up ahead with his friends. The story is unique to tell the adventure of Snoopy in Space, even if it is streaming on Apple TV + right now. However it has some greatest moments around like reuniting with Spike, the birds are building things, Snoopy gets to go to space, all sorts of things that actually relate to the story itself, and it’s really great. If you ever want to experience a dog in space, then this story is just for you.
