    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 11, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man #1.2 is a comic book that embraces a shaky premise but manages to come out with something worthy of its initial undertaking. In other words my fellow fanboys and fangirls: I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 15, 2014

    Prez draws a rough Spider-man where the story and art are completely meld one into the other. The artwork does not over power the story at all. While the lines are rough, this new Marvel house style works well for characters like Spider-man and Daredevil. The inks feel minimal and the colours are simple. Unfortunately, this latest Spider-man series by Marvel is not as cheap under like the previous series. Read Full Review

    It feels good to be this excited for a Parker story. Theres so much to appreciate about Learning to Crawl. Two issues in, were already dealing with some serious magic. This story truly needs to be read. Read Full Review

    This 'Learning to Crawl' mini-series would be worth reading if for no other reason than because Ramon Perez perfectly marries the Steve Ditjo era of ASM with more modern storytelling sensibilities. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Jun 12, 2014

    Amazing Spider-Man: Learning to Crawl #1.2 continues to tell the tale of Peter's early days, but gets mired in continuity and plotting that only Spider-Man enthusiasts will fully appreciate. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 13, 2014

    "Learning to Crawl" is an interesting case. Considering the sliding timeline of Marvel's heroes with regards to their continuity, it makes sense that we would eventually see a teenage Peter Parker in the Internet age, but the retroactive inclusion of "Clash" is a little bit heavy-handed.

    The Latest Pull - Zack Myers Jun 13, 2014

    The series is an interesting read, giving fans a new look on the origin of Spider-Man. I just wish Peter Parker wasn't so edgy and whiney all the time about money. Hopefully his personality changes before it ruins the whole series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 12, 2014

    "Amazing Spider-Man" #1.2 may come across as a luxury. After all, it tells a story between stories that have been re-told and re-published many times over the last half-century, but it truly is a fresh adventure for Peter Parker and his surrounding cast. If you're like me and clock in to your comic book reading sometime after Spider-Man's title climbed into triple digits (or his brand expanded into more than one title) then you may recall the first time you saw those first issues, whether they were reprinted in "Marvel Tales" or another single issue or collected in a trade, such as "Origins of Marvel Comics" or "Sons of Marvel Origins." This series delivers the closest thing to that vibe, as Slott's story digs into the past emotionally and Prez's art pays fine tribute to Ditko's creativity. This is a luxury, but like all great luxuries, it's one that you'll truly appreciate indulging in. Read Full Review
