I originally set up this blog to showcase the old Dope Rider comic strips I occasionally did for High Times from the mid-1970s through the mid-1980s. With High Times' 40th anniversary issue in 2014, I restarted the strip and have been doing my best to get one done for each issue. A few months after they appear in the magazine, I will archive them here. Note: all images are copyrighted by Paul Kirchner.


If you'd like a collection of all the original Dope Riders in one volume, look for my anthology Awaiting the Collapse on ebay or Amazon. If you'd like to purchase Dope Rider merchandise, visit my Dope Rider Store at CafePress.com and click on a design you like. Your patronage is most appreciated!

Dope Rider, "Graffiti"

This idea popped into my head when I was looking at some interesting graffiti on a bridge abutment. What happens on the other side of the wall?

Paul Kirchner Interview

When I was at the Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethesda, Maryland in September, I gave a lengthy interview to Scott Edelman at an excellent Indian restaurant--and he picked up the check!

My super-talented daughter Toni carved this Dope Rider pumpkin for Halloween.
