Is Learning to Crawl going to be set in the present day (as in 21st Century, not during the current comics) or is it going to set in the '60s? I'm assuming since they have tohe whole sliding time scale, or whatever they call it, it'll be present day.
You assume right. Peter isn't a guy pushing 70 in current comics.

That's why I thought that Byrne's Chapter One was such an epic fail, they retold the same old stories in a more modern but not completely modern setting, because in 1998 when it was published, the modern setting they chose to set Peter's formative years were the mid 1980s.
Not seeing the problem. If you tell a story set in Peter's past that past will always be X number of years from the date the story is published in. The fashions, music and events mentioned are just "window dressing" and not meant to lock the story to a particular year or era.
