Beagle Scouts’ Life

Comic book Peanuts

With the coming of the Camp Snoopy series to AppleTV+, it is unsurprising that we’re seeing Beagle Scout merch in the pipeline. Among these is Snoopy’s Beagle Scout Tales, next May’s entry in the “Peanuts Graphic Novel” series. As with most of these books, this will combine a new comic book short story with reprints of the Kaboom!-era comic book material (including the Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown adaptation) and some strips. The new story will presumably be drawn by Robert Pope, as he’s the only one besides Schulz with an on-Amazon credit for this. As for which stories from the comic books will be included, well, I’ve not referenced all of the contents to these issues so I don’t know how many Beagle Scout stories there were in the comic books, but I reckon there’s a chance that one that I wrote (“Movie Time”) will end up in these pages.

This collection is available for preorder both as a paperback and a hardcover. Also coming out in May is Welcome to Camp Snoopy, which we are told is a “playful guide that ties into the Apple TV+ show”.
