Love the new layouts on modern pages!! Thank you!
I have noticed that we now have the ability to post comments on pages. Is it possible to disable this element. I don't want comments on our Portal. Please advice.

As a tenant/sharepoint admin you can make comments disabled by default for page on specific communication sites by running the command:
Set-SPOsite -identity https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/sites/<site> -commentsOnSitePagesDisabled 1

You can also turn off comments on a page by page basis - option is that the bottom of the page when you're in edit mode.
We have moved 2 "classic" blog sites to the new Communication Sites using News Posts -- and we can't go live with one of them because there is no way to disable the Comments box.
We use Comments in other modern sites, however, so we don't want to turn them off globally.
I also tried adjusting Permissions but if I block the Comments field, it blocks some content from loading also.
You can disable this for the whole tenant if you have SharePoint Admin permissions. Go to SharePoint Online admin -> Settings -> Comments on Site Pages -> Disable
