COMICS: Learn to Crawl this May in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1.1!

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 ArtistRamón Pérez (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


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!

It's funny to have the regular and variant covers with basically the same pose, I don't think I've seen that before.

I can't wait for #1.9 to go on sale.

Ross should do a cover for every Marvel title throughout one calendar year.
Don't know how fast he paints but his work is great.

Morlun has something to do with it calling it right now

655321 - 4/15/2014, 9:18 AM
that last panel looks like stephen colbert laughing at an asian aunt may.
Pheezmatic - 4/15/2014, 9:30 AM
ok so Ross is boss..always has been...always will be..

ok now i love JRJR's work throughout the years(even while most started to despise it), but that cover is f*ckin butt ass ugly...why is spider so muscular?? he knows better...and he was one of spiders best artists of all time....but that piece right there looks frickin bad.
TheGambitFreak - 4/15/2014, 11:26 AM
75 years of Marvel and it's still mandatory we get an unneeded retcon every 2 years. Why?
DrDoom - 4/15/2014, 12:01 PM
Why is Slott still writing Spider-Man?
Indy - 4/15/2014, 12:06 PM
um is Aunt may crying or laughing are they smiling at uncle ben funeral?
JakMax - 4/15/2014, 12:25 PM
Love Alex Ross,
But I refuse to buy anything written by Fat [frick] Slott..

He needs to be pushed away from the Character of Spiderman...because whatever the [frick] he's writing, just isn't that character.

Fire him Marvel.

@jakmax have you read any of slotts spidey run? Its brillaint. superior was awesome. Big time-awesome. Spider island awesome! If you didnt read any of it, why bash it on the internet? Troll.
Makiveli21 - 4/15/2014, 4:56 PM
Slott isnt responsible for omd or sins past. That alone keeps him out of the bottom tier of all time spidey writers.
FusionForce - 4/15/2014, 7:23 PM
Everything Fat Slott touches turns to sh!t. I'd rather read Sins Past than that stupid Alpha and "Superior" storyline.
FusionForce - 4/16/2014, 6:33 AM
At least Slotts sh!tty dialogue will suit the era of this story, lol!
