this error means that pdfTeX hasn't found an entry for rcomic7m. It's not that ComicSans has become unusable. Then the failure would have been different. And would have occurred later.

You're using now TeX Live 2012. Here updmap/updmap-sys work a bit different than before (also due to sudo/sudo -H). When your additional MAP file fragments are in your private tree you now need to run updmap privately (meaning: no sudo!) – because sudo -H masks your private tree when used from TLU or tlmgr – so that your private pdftex.map file is finally created. When you still have TL '11 on your Mac, try for comparison/verification to switch that version active and see how it works with your TeX file!
