I saw today that WordPress.com has released a new WordPress theme geared toward comic writers, called Panel. It reminded me of an older project called ComicPress. ComicPress was probably ahead of its time in terms of just how niche it is, and in 2011 it had stopped major development. However, looking at the theme on the .org repository, it was updated last year. Either way, I bet a theme like this could do better today than even just a year or two ago, as WordPress becomes more widely “standard” and more niche themes appear to achieve very particular tasks.
