comment How To Ask Fellow Designer For Native Files For Prepress Purposes Only?
I'd go with "Hey, can I have your native files to allow me to fix things for you in prepress?"

comment Critique this map with many labeled points. Is there a better way to do this?
@Jongware that's not a bad suggestion, but do note that the underground map simplification works a lot better than road simplification as there's no need to be accurate as the user doesn't have to deal with way finding beyond knowing the stops when on the tube. When driving (or walking) scale and proportion is a lot more critical as you're the one navigating.

If you want to add readability, you likely want to avoid 'loud' and 'allcaps'.

A comic typeface is suitable for a comic. It may be that a comic isn't suitable for something to be read from a distance.

comment What's the more appropriate way to introduce a “flashback” in a graphic novel, in terms of color, line strokes and panel shape?
Other saying 'they should look different' there's no specific rule here. Google will provide you with plenty of options to consider. One of many google results: youtube.com/watch?v=dZ4FY-f_Y5c

comment Can I scale illustrator files up when printing?
Yes, you can print your images any size you desire. Your illustration doesn't have to be actual size, though. You can also scale it during the printing process (via the print driver/dialog)

comment What technique was used?
Likely done in PhotoShop. Likely done with found and scanned in texture, gradient tool, posterization filter, layer blending, and plenty of manual drawing/cutting and pasting/illustration.

comment A simple question about user experience design
Asking for general resources to learn a field of study is simply too broad of a question for StackExchange. However, I would suggest you read through some questions related to this over on ux.stackexchange.com

comment Tools for creating and exporting a LOT of icons?
Fireworks can do this. But, that said, it'd help to know what the end-environment will be. For the web, you often want to keep all of your icons as one file--or possibly as a font.
