What's up with Dobie's feet? It looks like some other artist cut and pasted them out of a kindergartner's drawing.
The lettering on the cover and the ad were done by Ira Schnapp. It's strange that he apparently did the logo too (note how the letterforms in "Dobie Gillis" are similar to other logos he designed, like Batman, Inferior Five, and Bob Hope). Maybe the TV show's own logo wasn't considered up to snuff for attracting eyeballs on newsstands; the etched look of the one in the title card that Google turns up suggests this to me.
