Designed like a comic book novel, “Weirdo” written in all caps at the top and “Hey Kids! We Got Elf Squelch” at the bottom, two figures (a man and a child) walk in front of a diner, on the right is a man in a doorframe with wild black hair wearing a ratty gray coat, on the right is large woman sitting down on the pavement. The border contains nude cartoon figures acting out words printed around them.
