Mailbag: Making a Profit on a Book

Q. I’m nearing the end of the second year of my webcomic. I’ve been thinking about compiling my first book. Unfortunately, Lulu, with whom I hoped to publish, says it costs $13.60 for a (pretty weak) 32 page book in color!
My question is: How could I ever turn a profit with that? Can you recommend any publishing alternatives (self-publishing or otherwise) that might help me?
