All the 1970s - 80s Dope Riders, along with other of my comics, are in my anthology Awaiting the Collapse. The comics I've done from 2015 through 2020 are in my new anthology, A Fistful of Delirium. Both are available at www.paulkirchner.com. If you'd like to purchase Dope Rider merchandise, visit my Dope Rider Store at CafePress.com. I think I finally got the link straightened out. Your patronage is most appreciated!

Dope Rider, "Nothing"

 I had a different idea when I started to draw this, but it turned out differently.

Etch-A-Sketch Skull Art

 I was impressed by this drawing of a skull done on a pocket-sized Etch-A-Sketch. The artist is Jan Labowitch, 24, who must be one of the world's greatest Etch-A-Sketch masters. Here work sells for hundreds of dollars. Whatever you do, don't shake it! There's an article about her here.

Dope Rider, "Otis"

I wanted to create a character who is nothing but a silhouette filled with tattoo images. This is him. Even though he appears to have died at the end of the strip, I'll use him again. After all, Daffy Duck got blown up numerous times and that didn't stop him from making subsequent appearances.

Dope Rider, "Noir"

 I recently went through a phase of watching a lot of noir films from the 1940s and early 1950s: "Out of the Past," "Asphalt Jungle, "Double Indemnity," "Strangers on a Train," "The Killers," and one so weird I liked it best, "Detour." I really wanted to do a noir Dope Rider but it took awhile to work out the logic. (Some people say there's no logic to Dope Rider, but they're liars, I tell you, liars!)
