NEW YORK (AP) -- The story of how the crass comics magazine Cracked was brought back to life begins, of all places, at a white-shoe law firm in New York.Alrighty. Cracked is back. In all honesty, I remember very little about it, but I do remember it was part of the childhood.
A pudgy young lawyer named Monty Sarhan had been giving life to the dreams of Internet entrepreneurs by helping them with finance deals when he caught the entrepreneurial bug himself. He decided to leave the legal profession and "go for the brass ring" by acquiring a media company.snip That potential will be revealed when the new Cracked hits newsstands on Tuesday after a two-year hiatus. It had a press run of 100,000 and has a cover price of $3.99. True to its heritage as a lampooner of pop culture, its debut cover features a doctored photo of Tom Cruise's head pasted onto the body of Steve Carell and asks if he is "The 44-Year-Old Virgin?"
