Asylum Squad Comic Strip 56

Asylum Squad Comic Strip 56

Sorry again for the delay... my mom just got married, I was the maid of honour, and was thus busy prepping for that, and was out of town for a while. Also, I've been at work on a project that is going to be displayed on the screens in the Toronto subway system. Apart from that, I have no other excuses for my lack of a recent update!

The test prints of 'Asylum Squad Side Story: The Psychosis Diaries' were created and bought up (there was only 7 of them), but the batch of 50 to come should be ready soon. I've been talking with some people about the possibility of a Toronto area book launch. I will be starring on a feminist radio show at some point as well.

Med update: I am now down to only 2 milligrams of Abilify - that's practically nothing! My goal is to be medication free within the next year or so. Don't let anyone ever tell you you can't be free from the shackles of psychiatric medication! I'm living proof! :D




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
