Check out new comics arriving this week from Chip Zdarsky, Jason Loo, Patrick Sparrow, Scott Snyder, Christos Gage, Barndon Thomas and more.
Welcome to our second Can’t Wait for Comics for this week, your guide to what comics are arriving in comic book stores, bookstores and on digital. Halloween week brings an extra-large helping of horror and Halloween-themed comics and graphic novels, so I broke them out into their own separate post yesterday. This post will spotlight some of their not-so-scary brethren that can also be found on shelves this week.
You can visit Diamond’s website for this week’s almost complete list of new comics arriving in stores. The Lunar Distribution home page has DC’s releases and the comiXology new releases page for what’s available digitally.
I should also add that the list of what is actually arriving at your local shop can vary from what’s on anyone’s official website for a myriad of reasons — so always check with your comics retailer for the final word on availability.

Joe Kelly and Gerardo Sandoval present a monstrous look at Spider-Man next year.
Joe Kelly and Chris Bachalo’s adrenaline-fueled Non-Stop Spider-Man ended up being, um, not so non-stop, as it ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. But now Marvel has revealed where you can read the next chapter — in the pages of Savage Spider-Man, a miniseries kicking off in February.

“You may think you’ve seen a monstrous or vicious Spider-Man before, but never like this,” Spider-Man Editor Nick Lowe told Marvel.com. “This book is so intense that you’re going to need to put it down between pages to get your breath back.”
You’ve been warned! Make sure you’re hydrated as well before you start reading it as well, just in case..

The X-Statix team returns to the Marvel universe to confront a new team of mutants taking their spotlight.
The creative team behind one of Marvel’s most creative and fun comics from the early 2000s will reunite in February for The X-Cellent.
Writer Peter Milligan and artists Michael and Laura Allred, whose run on X-Force and X-Statix introduced us to Doop, Anarchist, Mister Sensitive, Vivisector, U-Go Girl, Dead Girl and many others (most of whom ended up dead), will return to Marvel for the new series.
“I’m thoroughly X-Statix to be working with Mike and Laura Allred again,” Milligan told Marvel.com. “And it’s been truly X-CELLENT to discover that we’ve lost none of our alchemical fizz in conjuring up this new comic, this new title, this new beginning: The X-Cellent!”
