Newsarama just completed an interview an interview with Dan Slott on how Learning to Crawl is not a retelling.
This series tells what Slott calls “the story you never knew about the story you know by heart,” exploring the first 60 days of the fledgling Spider-Man and answering questions that have lingered since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko first put them down on paper in 1962.
It goes from the second Amazing Fantasy #15 is over and over the course of Amazing Spider-Man #1 through #3. Those stories are acknowledged, but this isn’t about retelling those comics we’ve already read. In “Learning TO Crawl,” you’ll be able to tell where these stories takes place but you’ll get new insight why certain things happened and it’ll really allow us to explore the journey of how Peter learned to become Spider-Man. He knows the lesson of “with great power comes great responsibility,” but he doesn’t know what to do with it. In essence we’re trying to tell a “Year One” style Spider-Man story.
