Yup, that’s how you disable comments in WordPress.

If you want to actually customize the theme you can always do that, too. You could copy content.php and content-list.php to your Child theme and just remove the comment bubble yourself.

Or you could hide it with CSS, possibly?

.comment-bubble { display: none; }

For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
