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 "1968"

I had been wanting to do a Dope Rider homage to Yellow Submarine for quite some time and finally got around to it. By the way, while researching the film I learned two things that surprised me: (a) the artwork was not done by Peter Max, the great 1960s psychedelic artist, but by Heinz Edelmann, a German illustrator and designer, and (b) the Beatles did not do the voiceover dialogue in the movie--it was done by actors imitating their voices.
