Making Money from Webcomics: Is Self-Publishing Dead Tree Versions the Answer?

In an interesting thread on "can webcomics be profitable" over at Comicon, Freddy Wertham Jr writes:

I have a near-total ignorance of webcomics so forgive me if this question seems stupid but how many of you webcomic creators offer printed versions of your works via your websites and, if so, how successful/profitable are they?

The reason I am curious is that I do consultancy work for self-published book authors. The biggest problem my clients have once their work is complete, is distribution to the mass market. Like comics distributors, book distribution companies take 65% of the profits.
