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.

Dope Rider News!
High Times editor Chris Simunek and art director Frank Max asked me to do a new Dope Rider adventure for the 40th anniversary issue, November 2014. It seemed like a great idea to me, as Dope Rider debuted in the 1st anniversary issue in 1975. I did a three-page story, "Kukulkan's Kush." It took me about a month, which I admit is slow, but I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. The Dope Rider merchandise at my cafepress store uses some of the images I came up with for the story. I eventually will post it at this site, but you'll be able to find it on your favorite newsstand September 2.
