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. Your patronage is most appreciated!

Dope Rider, "Genie"

 A very wordy Dope Rider page. Remember, you can make it larger by clicking on it.



Psychedelic Shower Curtain

 I like this, but as a shower curtain it's a bit much. Maybe PJs.

Dope Rider, "Spaced"

I hate to play favorites, but I was particularly pleased with the way this Dope Rider page turned out. Ideas occur to me as I'm drawing, so I generally don't know how an idea is going to come to fruition even after I've committed to it.



Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Dope Rider, "Party"

This Dope Rider strip came about through a different process than I normally use. Usually, I first think of a strong visual and build the story around it. In this case, the idea came first. I've found that it's important to my sense of well-being not to admit too many negative influences into my mind, whether from entertainment, the news media, or even people I know who tend to be negative, and I wanted to construct a story based on this thought. I couldn't say much about this concept without getting too wordy and not very entertaining. However, I think the page is redeemed by showing as attendees at the TEOTWAWKI* party every character, major or minor, who has ever appeared in a previous strip.

Dope Rider, "Bong Trip"

Sometimes I get inspiration from a book. I read a biography of Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, who once told his studio musicians to pretend they had been swallowed by their instruments. It occurred to me that Dope Rider might be swallowed by his bong.
