If enough of you go to SXSW’s website and vote for us, we can do a live After Hours episode in Austin. PLEASE HELP! Otherwise we’ll lose the vote, burn the scripts in a rage, and weep into our Webbys.

Yes, that’s the correct year. In 1958 President Eisenhower was still writing his military-industrial complex speech, the Giants and Dodgers were playing their first seasons in California, and Cracked The Magazine began its mission to be better-ish than Mad Magazine through totally original imitation. We’ve come a long way and become a completely different thing since then, but we haven’t forgotten that our brand’s got an old school pre-Internet vibe that’s totally classic. We’re printing this design by Mattographer in four colors, all of them in limited quantities (and the swellest typeface we could find). Get one before we run out, or only have that color you don’t think looks good on you. You know the one. [GET IT HERE]

When a group of slacker friends working at a debt collection agency gains amazing superpowers, they will stop at nothing to avoid using them. Because becoming a superhero just sounds like a lot of hard work.

See Antiheroes on Cracked starting this Monday!

Can this please be the one you guys make more episodes of, it’s already my favorite and I haven’t even seen it yet.

Cracked Studios did three episodes apiece for Adventures in Jedi SchoolRom.Com, and Welcome Back Potter. They’re all huge productions, and we got to do them because people like you watched them.

Which is to say, thank you! You are the wind beneath our wings and the C-stand beneath our lighting rig.

With Antiheroes, we’re doing our biggest season yet with FIVE episodes. Three this coming week (Mon/Weds/Fri), and two more the next week (Mon/Weds).

If you like Antiheroes show your friends! If you hate Antiheroes show your enemies! Either way, it’s the only way we can bring you shows this big without selling you DVDs and polluting the Earth forever.

In its ‘personal experience’ articles, written by a team run by the site’s editorial manager Robert Evans, Cracked has created a unique blend of hard news, in-depth profile, memoir—and crude, bleak humor. In an era when everyone’s trying to invent some new kind of journalism, Cracked may have actually done it.

From The American Spectator's piece on our Personal Experience stories, which feature Guantanamo Bay guards, legal prostitutes, reality TV nightmares and more.

(And in case you’re curious whether we’re beloved across the political spectrum, Mother Jones digs us too.)

Wow, they’ll put anyone on The Daily Show these days. (x)

If you’ve been with us since Season 1, you recognize that as Winston Rowntree’s classic intro artwork style. Also you probably see that design and hear the theme song in your head.
