The comments shape is part of the sheets shapes.
So you can change the shape of the comment via
the Drawings toolbar.

Goto Draw > Change Autoshape

From here you can change it to what ever you like
eg.&Lines,Co&nnectors,&Basic Shapes,Block &Arrows
&Flowchart,&Stars and Banners,&Callouts
&More AutoShapes...

To change the fill to a Pict is STD with all shapes.
Right Click | format comment
