Looks like brushwork for the texture, or just a premade background. The rest of it is simple line drawing and text.

Alright well thanks for that link Ca- I used his scanlines and recreated one which looks kinda like the source ones. I used a crumpled paper fill @ 39% opacity. Color doesn't match, but it's kind of close.

Here's the .psd in a .zip if anyone wants to use it. a few mirrors-
