Asylum Squad Comic Strip 43

Oh - the internet!

It's so easy to put forth information we later regret, and I've had more than my fair share of these sorts of experiences. This strip is based on incidents like that, though the information Cath puts forth wasn't the same as what I've sent out. Thankfully, most people understood that I was ill, and that I didn't mean what I was saying. Lost some friends, but it happens. Some people just can't separate the person from the illness.


PS: If you're interested, here's an interview I recently did with: The Sequential's Dalton Sharp.



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
