Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: I've invented a new literary genre.
T-Rex: ICEPUNK
T-Rex: Like Steampunk, only colder.
Utahraptor: Is that it? A single gimmick?
Utahraptor: To make a whole genre that isn't even that interesting?
T-Rex: Hey. It worked for Stephanie Meyer.

The author writes:

I was bemused the first time I went into a bookstore and saw among the usual labels for biographies, crime, fantasy, etc.: "Paranormal Romance". Not just a few books, but a whole section of bookshelf, floor to eye level.

Not that I have anything against it existing. If people like it enough to pay money for it, and people want to write it, that's fine.
