Dope Comix #3 continues along the same lines as #1 and #2: people who use recreational drugs are stupid. Despite the endless preaching, the comic is nearly salvaged at the end with an inspired romantic adventure by Doug Hansen, "A Night in a Head Shop." Without that marvelous contribution, this Nancy Reagan "just-say-no" government-approved drug education pamphlet would be pure drivel (though skillfully illustrated). Features contributions from Doug Steffan, Gary Whitney, Howard Cruse, Steve Stiles, and Larry Rippee, among others.

There are two printings of this comic book, both by Kitchen Sink Enterprises. The 1st printing (10,000 copies) has a $1.00 cover price. The 2nd printing (5,000 copies) has a $1.50 cover price.
