how irrelevant is the comic book industry?

Totally. See ICv2 - Top 300 Comics Actual Sales--May 2011. Only 50 comics are selling more than 50,000 copies; none, not even the #1 issue of DC's latest over-hyped effort to revitalize the market, are selling more than 96,000. Marvel and DC both have titles that sold fewer than 5000 copies.
