This is the second story published from IDW featuring the long running TNT (Tamers of Non-Human Threats) series from Europe. TNT is about Donald Duck and his cousin Fethry Duck joining a paranormal control agency to handle, find and counter paranormal threats to humanity before the public finds out about them and panics.

TNT-logo-color-xtraOur story begins with Donald waking up from the latest in a series of nightmares he has been having over the last few months. Wanting to get away from spilling any info about the dreams to his worried nephews. He takes a Sunday drive until he comes across Daisy going on a date with his cousin Gladstone Gander with his newly acquired European import car. Donald soon leaves in despair over his lack of funds to take Daisy on a proper night out.

Fethry, having received a new mission from the head of TNT to investigate paranormal activities, soon picks up Donald and heads to a haunted castle before it could cause harm to Duckburg. The duo soon runs across some miserable haunts as they came out for a swinging wake to try and scare the new owner away, one problem though…. They aren’t good at haunting.

Before we head off to the next story  , I must say I loved this cameo of the tourist from the Duck Tales cartoon.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

 

When I was a kid, reading the TNT stories in Mickey Parade, I always thought it was an sci-fi tale due to some stories taking place In outer space with other agents but today I learned that wasn’t always the case. This was a delightful story and hopefully more TNT tales make their way into future issues including the ones I read as a kid.

 

The second story, however, was not to my liking. It will please longtime fans of Fethry and the Brazilian Disney comics for sure, but the story needed some more punch to catch my interest. Maybe the next story will be more to my liking.
