Do Webcomics Follow a Power Law Distribution?

I often think of blogs as webcomics’ more verbose, less flashy cousin. There are countless parallels between blogs and webcomics and I often find insights into blogs providing some new way to think about webcomics.

Clay Shirky wrote an article on the inevitable inequality of audience distribution in the “blogosphere” and it does seem to have some relevance to webcomicland as well. Do webcomics follow a power law distribution?
