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!

"A Fistful of Delirium"--New Dope Rider Collection

A new collection of my Dope Rider strips that appeared in High Times between January 2015 and May 2020. This is the English-language edition. Each book will be signed and will include a hand-signed, limited-edition print.

It's $30. Please buy it through www.paulkirchner.com rather than amazon or ebay.




















There are more than 60 one-page strips. Each strip appears on a righthand page, with a continuing with a wordless story continuing in single frames throughout the book on the left, as is shown below.



Dope Rider, "Surf Guitar"

 I had been listening to compilations of surf guitar music on YouTube when I did this one.

Dope Rider, "Campaign Announcement"

 High Times contacted me when--to my surprise!--it was going to resume publication in September 2020, and they wanted a new Dope Rider. Well, what to do but a not entirely coherent take on national politics?




















This post disappeared briefly. Apparently I had violated a guideline. Heaven forfend! I changed the title to cover my tracks.

Dope Rider, "Reality"

 This is the last Dope Rider I did before High Times shut down for a few months. I have a book coming out soon of all the strips I've done for High Times since I started doing a page an issue in January 2015. This will be the last of the one pagers in the collection. I think it's makes a good finale, but it's not the Bone Ranger's last hurrah. I'm back doing a Dope rider page every month except for a couple of recent hiccups, such as missing one month cuz of having the goldurned COVID. Anyway, at the moment I've got a couple of good ideas and I'm going to try to finally get ahead on the strips so I won't miss a deadline again.
