I respect all the views on maps, no maps, game content etc. For me, I look forward to the comics for the story and the art. I think if you have to prioritize then the purpose of a comic should come first. There is an abundance of game material, maps, etc, published for Galorian, and it seems that a easy solution would be to just have the maps created as a PDF. I am not a collector, I just really like the story. The comic book medium is about story telling, just like the novels. That is what the genre is for. Adding a little content seems fine, but it seems unrealistic to expect a comic to be primarily a gaming supplement. However, I really can relate to the man who plays with his son. My sons, 9 and 10, also play with me, so I can relate. But they also just love to read these comics. We do not buy any other comics. We buy them because, just like the novels, they flesh out the world and bring it to life.
So, a possible solution is to create PDF maps and encounters. This keeps the comic profitable and yet still creates these table top options. It is compromise that will not please everyone, but it could work.
