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, "Looking"

I considered having Dope Rider encounter Stanley Kubrick inside the landing module, but decided that was too "of the moment."


  1. Hi Paul Kirchner, love your work! and was wondering : have you considered starting an Instagram account for posting Dope Rider updates, and other work ?.. I'm just a big fan and your work and think it should get all the exposure it possibly can and your crisp lines and brilliant colors work well on digital media. Well, end of cheesy promo-talk :-) but I enjoy looking at many great artists on Instagram and would love if Dope Rider was there too.

    1. This is good advice and I appreciate it, but I'm afraid I'm not very savvy with social media. Also, I'm working on a couple of projects and believe it or not it's often a challenge just to get one page of Dope Rider done each month for High Times. Sometimes I can't manage it.

  2. ok, I'll read Dope Rider here on the blog then :)
