We suggest an innovative distribution function of landslide sizes, based on the non-extensive Tsallis entropy. Our result incorporates the characteristics of non-extensivity of fragmentation into the cumulative distribution of landslide sizes. Such an approach can lead to a groundbreaking statistical physics of landslides.
