Digital artists: What is this cool, grainy Photoshop texture used in webcomics and how do I make it too?

I've been seeing this texture appear in several webcomics, particularly Gunnerkrigg Court
(previous pages offer more examples). I think he draws in Photoshop. It's not a smooth color look, and I like the depth and atmosphere it gives to the art, giving it more of a painterly feel. How do you think it was most likely created (with noise? a filter? some type of layering?) and/or what is the simplest way to achieve this effect?
