HuffPo: Cracked magazine is back

Eat The Press | Cracked Is Back, With A Stella(r) Comedy Roster Led By Michael Ian Black | The Huffington Post: "After a 48-year history and a year-and-a-half long hiatus, Cracked Magazine is back, rejigged, restaffed and reimagined as a serious humor magazine, prepared by people who would know. Led by comedian/actor/editor-at-large Michael Ian Black, whose credits include The State On MTV, Stella, Wet Hot American Summer and VH1 'I Can Dryly Comment On The Events Of The '70s, '80s and '90s,' the magazine has tapped into the comedy community hard, featuring writers from The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live & Chappelle's Show (this cover alone namechecks Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, South Park's loveable Libertarians Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Bill Murray, Carlos 'Mind Of' Mencia, and Ian Black). Greatest Living Writer Ever and super-hip dad Neal Pollack."

I picked this up myself the other day and have pretty much enjoyed it. It's much more in the line of SPY or National Lampoon than the old Cracked, and I miss the comics (there are a couple of shorts though). But the tone and comedy, though uneven, wasn't bad.
