You can easily install comix via software center (or by clicking here) that way it is automatically added to your gnome menus and updated via the update manager.

I see, I did not find the application in .deb form - thanks for the link. – Oxwivi Mar 2 '11 at 17:30

It's always better to install from software center or apt-get as mentioned above, but since you have already installed it. typing comix on the terminal is your best bet as comix creates a symlink in your executable path. you can also copy comix.desktop file from the source in that link to your /usr/share/applications/ to create a menu.
