Cyberpunk is a genre I am totally in love with. From the futuristic setting to the film noir elements to it. Usually set in high tech setting, in a dystopian society, with a gritty street vibe atmosphere to it.
Then the genre splits up into SEVERAL different types of punk genres. Here are a few:
The three I just mentioned seem to be the most known derivatives. However recently at this years Dragon Con, a new derivative was just born. And its called Dreadpunk.
This genre puts emphasis on horror mysteries in a Victorian age setting similar to Steampunk…..but more dark, and gory. Examples of Dreadpunk would be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a gory version of Sherlock Holmes, and of course the TV series Penny Dreadful)
