Asylum Squad: Comic Strip 6

Sarafin Updated: Jul 13th 2010

aslyum squad strip 6

I'm not sure how common this is with psychosis, but one thing I experienced was the seeming emergence of old memories I had long forgotten about from my youth. Usually it felt as though these memories were being brought up to exploit in my mind and cause me embarrassment. In the case of this comic, Liz is reminded of her strange experiences with occultism, which weren't forgotten about, but instead eventually dismissed by her as coincidental nonsense. (It's very difficult to behave normally with this kind of noise circulating through the mind at a constant.)




Sarafin is a Toronto-based artist and writer, a student of illustration, and a self-described psychiatric survivor. She currently writes and draws a webcomic entitled 'Asylum Squad', which exemplifies the psychotic experience, satirizes psychiatry, and parodies drug culture. You can now view all of The Psychosis Diaries strips at and of course the ongoing series is available at
