CABLE #1 hits a home run on some pages and on others might need some batting practice. If you are a fan of young Cable, this is a must-read, whereas a general X-Men fan might wait for the second to see if there is a better hook for the readers.

Welcome to PANEL BREAKDOWN, a weekly series where we take a look at our favorite panels of a comic book. This week we are talking about the new Marvel Comics series Cable #1 written by Gerry Duggan, with art by Phil Noto, and you will read Joe Sabino’s letters. Tom Muller is the designer on the issue.

This episode we focus on the relationship between Sabino’s letter work and Noto’s art.

About Cable #1:
Cable was a grizzled old veteran of the wars to save the future… and he will be again. But for now, he’s a young mutant living in paradise leading a life of adventure! Nathan Summers, son of two of the most powerful mutants on Krakoa, has a destiny leading the youth of mutantkind in rebellion… so why not start now? Gerry Duggan (MARAUDERS, DEADPOOL) and Phil Noto (STAR WARS, POE DAMERON) bring us young Cable as we’ve never seen him before!
