How much do comic book writers/artists get paid?

I was trying to figure out the economics of the comic book industry. Does anyone know how many copies the average comic book sells?

And how much do the creatives get paid? Do the writers/artists get paid by the page, or by the issue? Or is there a standard?

Not a burning question, just mild curiosity.
