Forney performs as narrator with animated video adaptations of selected comics, including “The Final Soundtrack,” a death fantasy involving blood, glamour, and Led Zeppelin, “How to Be a Fabulous Fag Hag,” based on an interview with Margaret Cho, and “My Date with Camille Paglia.” Kelso will discuss her new book, the acclaimed Squirrel Mother, showing panels from the book that were inspired by her own life.
