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, "Firebird Motel"
My friend Tom Conroy once told me that the buttes you see standing above the desert floor date from an ancient war fought by aliens on planet earth; when an anti-matter bomb exploded, the stone directly underneath it was left intact. I liked that idea and fit the reference to the Anti-Matter War in this episode.
