    Cracked Magazine was a weekly American humor magazine launched in the autumn of 1958. Launched by former Associated Content owner Larry Gagosian and reprinted from a British company, Cracked Magazine was one of the first magazines to target the emerging young generation. The magazine's founding editorials took aim at both current events and popular culture, as well as offering an in depth look at how humor can impact social issues. Cracked was to become the strongest and longest lasting of the many magazines to be launched during the post-war era. In fact, many of its American counterparts had criticized the magazine for its seemingly socialist leaning - although the magazine did try to diversify and attract more conservative voters.

    Cracked Magazine enjoyed a great run throughout the 1960s. Though the name "Cracked" is an exaggeration, the humor within the publication was real and genuine. And as it turned out, it was far from dry and simplistic. The bookstores quickly saw the strength of the magazine and the appeal of its content and began carrying it in their stores. Cracked became one of the most popular magazines of the decade and continues to have a strong following from some nostalgic readers to today.
