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 & Me

Here's me, acting out the gravedigger scene from Hamlet: "Alaspoor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. . ."

My wife took this picture of me as I was working on my next Dope Rider. It's a plastic model skull I put together back in the 1970s and I have been referring to it ever since when I draw the Lone Stoner.
