This May, following the debut of the highly anticipated return of Peter Parker in Amazing Spider-Man #1, experience his early days as Spider-Man like you’ve never seen before in Learning to Crawl, a new 5-issue series beginning in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1.1! New York Times Bestselling writer Dan Slott (Superior Spider-Man, Silver Surfer) and Eisner Award-Winning Artist RamónPérez (Wolverine and the X-Men, Tale of Sand) craft an all-new spin on the earliest days of the webbed wonder that have bitter consequences to this very day!

From that fateful night he lost his Uncle Ben, a new life began. But there is more to the story of how Peter Parker became the Amazing Spider-Man.

“We all love a good ‘Year One’ story,” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “But this is so much MORE! Not only does this address Spider-Man’s past, but it sets up a new villain that will be a huge part of Dan Slott’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN plans moving forward.”

We all know how Peter Parker learned responsibility, but this series tells the story of how Spider-Man became the super hero we all know and love! Set within the first 60 days of his webslinging career, Learning to Crawl is an all-new tale set parallel to the character’s first appearance in 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 and 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 - #3 that will blaze new trails for upcoming Amazing Spider-Man story arcs in Dan Slott’s new series!

“It’s one thing to know that with great power comes great responsibility, but what do you do with it?” says series writer Dan Slott, in an interview with Marvel.com.

Fans eagerly awaiting Learning to Crawl can get their first taste early with a special 8-page lead-in story from Slott & Pérez in the back of the highly anticipated Amazing Spider-Man #1 later this month!

Now is your chance to experience the story you never knew about the story you know by heart! How did Peter Parker rise to the occasion to become the greatest hero the world has ever seen? And who is the mysterious new villain Clash? All will be answered when the exciting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1.1 – the first chapter of Learning to Crawl – swings into comic shops this May!

Aunt May looks Asian and Peter looks like Hank Hill's half Asian brother.

Once you go Miles Morales you don't go back.

Yeah, not to happy with the art. Peter doesn't look like the same person in all of the panels. :/ Hopefully the story will be good.

Not digging the art

Posted by Perfect 10

this is some bad art. makes me second guess picking it up. thought it was going to have the art from superior and that first cover we saw of the amazing spider-man one :(. looks waaay too dark and gloomy

@warshield: Well he's in the ultimate universe so why should I care.

For a second I thought they were bringing the arm pit webs back. If only.

Crap

@warshield: I prefer all the power, and none of the responsibility...

@anthonygiu:

Coming from the guy with a Batman avatar (technically Bruce Wayne)......

I am going to miss Superior Spider-man. Too bad Peter Parker couldn't just adopt the Superior Spider-man lifestyle (goons, tech, and suit). Could do without Otto's obnoxious personality.

the art......... ewww

I hope it's better than "Spider-Man: Season One". That one didn't really do anything creative. It was just 2 comics we've all read before put together. So, I hope that this is better.

Hey! Does this mean web-constructs are back?

I can't be the only one who misses this!

Once you go Miles Morales you don't go back.

Hold the phone, just occured to me: Why didn't the Webhead's spider-sense warn him about that little zap? Come to think of it, why didn't Spidey just dodge all of the little dude's attacks with said spider-sense? He's got the experience and knows to trust his spider-sense, while Miles hasn't got that bit, arguably Spidey's greatest weapon, figured out yet.

I'm looking forward to Amazing, but I think I'll skip this nonsense.

It's a flashback when he was 16, what were expecting.

I wasn't expecting anything, I was just pointing out I dislike Spider-Man's costume

Peters Costume is classic but a little boring. I fell it could benefit from a design update. In fact just off the top of my head it would be cool to see him in a retooled SpOck costume.

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Wow, this looks really really good. It will be absolutely perfect for me.

Simple. The whole comic was basically the writers going "See? It's Miles cool! Don't you wanna buy his book? Please buy his book!"

I'll wait for the preview. These pages are nearly incomprehensible without text.
