Saraƒin is a writer, illustrator, cartoonist, and mad identified person. Asylum Squad, the webcomic (www.asylumsquad.ca), was born during a year long stay in a Toronto mental institution as a creative means of passing Saraƒin’s time. (The version you see on that particular website is the continuation of the back stories started in the hospital setting, which are available for viewing at www.thepsychosisdiaries.com) The story concerns the adventures of Liz Madder and her three jaded asylum friends: Henry Chan, Cath Schneider, and Sarah Loveheart. Will the quirky quartet find inner peace in an imperfect system of medicine? Asylum Squad is a whimsical romp through madness and the mental health care system, sure to delight those who have “been there” as well as those who work in the system who “get it”.
