Zap2it has the first look anywhere at the title sequence for NBC’s new series “The Cape.”

The show wears its comic-book inspiration proudly, and the opening credits reflect that. Before we see any live-action images of series stars David Lyons, Summer Glau or James Frain, we see about 20 seconds of comic-book panels depicting our hero — cop-turned-masked avenger Vince Faraday (Lyons) — and his adventures in Palm City. (Comic artists Michael Gaydos, Gabriel Hardman and John Cassady created the pen-and-ink versions of the characters.)

The accompanying music by “Battlestar Galactica” and “Human Target” composer Bear McCreary is appropriately old-school and dramatic as well.

“The Cape” premieres at 9 p.m. ET Sunday (Jan. 9) on NBC. What do you think of the credit sequence? Pretty cool, no?
