Web-comics as harbinger for New Media

It is interesting reading about how web comic artists make money, since it could be a harbinger for the business model of all future content whether it is music, to tv, to movies, to news. Where the content is given away for free, as a way to sell ancillary products and services like concerts for bands or consulting services for software. The main webcomics I read, xkcd and order of the stick, seem to follow exclusively, use the comics to sell books and t-shirts model.
