Now he is joining forces with Encyclopocalypse Publications to bring us a new story in a new medium. TECH is set in the not-so-distant future where humans have discovered how to use alien technology, but of course that still doesn’t come cheap. Readers will follow a courier named Shel who delivers this tech to buyers on the black market. It’s a dangerous job, but it’s necessary to help her afford her daughter’s medical treatment. However, Shel will discover that this alien tech may solve more of her and her daughter’s problems than just money. What lengths would you be willing to go for a chance at using alien technology?


Natali said he chose Encyclopocalypse Publications because they “understand the inherent value of genre and are connoisseurs of its strangest and darkest corners, which is where I thrive.” Creating a comic has been a long-time dream of Natali’s and he “reveled in the freedom of a form unrestricted by time, money, and the machinery of Hollywood.” So it sounds like fans of Natali’s work can look forward to experiencing a story where he unleashes his complete creative vision.


TECH will release on September 22nd, 2023. Don’t miss it! If you’d like to pre-order from Encyclopocalypse Publications themselves, you can do so at
