I think a good example is Rich Burlew's Order of the Stick where the success of the online strip has allowed him to quit the day job and make his income from books, merchandise and advertising revenue. Not that it is anything like the income that say a Scott Adams gets from Dilbert, but this is still a niche audience.
Anyway my favorites apart from Order of the Stick are:
DM of the Rings
and not a cartoon and from an author whose work was appearing in print prior to the web Verity Stob at the Register
Quite a lot of other humour sites have developed a bit slowly, e.g. The Rockall Times, which I think is down to the difference between online and print media. Several attempts to do a Private Eye on the web have not entirely worked. I'll return to this theme later.

As one of the first lolcat known to man, your ancient skills in location-declaration and object-verbing have been passed down several generations, keeping the spirit of felinity alive.

So far I managed to earn enough XP to reach level 2, but have now been killed and zombified, meaning that I'll have to wait around for a revive to get back to playing how I prefer as a survivor. I may go and actually fight some other zombies in the time I'm zombified to earn XP which can help when I finally get revived.
It seems that there are a lot more groups than when I played before and things like organised assaults and defenses of things like the malls and forts are more of a feature than the time when I played before a couple of years ago.
