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, High Times, August 2015

This one's a little different. I had just got back from New Orleans, which might explain it.


  1. The psychedelic artwork has always been my main reason for buying High Times magazine. I've been trying to collect all the Dope Rider episodes released this year but I've fallen behind and am missing the May, August and September issues. I know one of those had no Dope Rider installment but I can't recall which. Do you have that info handy? I'd like to go head and order the missing issues I need before the price goes up anymore. Thanks in advance for the help

    1. I missed one issue in the fall. I lost track of which one, but I think September. Then my strip didn't appear in January. HT never got my subscription set up so I don't see the issues unless I swing by the office in NY. I'm a hermit, don't get out much.
