Magnum Annual 1983 (part 1)
The set up of the show was simple: Magnum was a private eye based in Hawaii. He lives in the guest house of an author, Robin Masters (voiced by Orson Welles), whose estate is watched over by an ex-British Army Sergeant Major, Jonathan Quayle Higgins III, played with an impeccable English accent by American actor John Hillerman. Magnum can often be found in a bar run by Rick Wright (Larry Manetti) or using the services of helicopter pilot T.C. Calvin (Roger E. Mosley), when he is not driving around in Masters' Ferrari 308 GTS.
This blog discussing the 1982 annual notes: "I expected something along the lines of your typical, boring and benign TV comic adaptation - harmless and child friendly. What I got was something not that far off from those old pulp magazines."
So, sit back, relax and enjoy a few pages from Magnum Annual 1983.
