I like this the best so far.

The G issue I think is forgivable once your realize it's a G.

Ok, last batch of experiments:

They look crappy because I just sketched them out on tablet. I'm partial to the simplified one without the words.

The one without words looks like a big happy face. I kinda like the one where the Genesis is sloping up, but I don't like the actual sloping part.

Nothing says quality like LENS FLARE.

...in other words, I'd avoid the lens flare.

Need's a hat, though.

Aye. You can do some grand suns with a simple gradient and they look much more original.

Why? I gotta hand it to you. Designing a logo with those words may be beyond my skills.

You know, we could adjust Rpin's logo. Replace the star and all it's spacial connotations with something more genesisy like, oh, a swirl?

Oh, hang on...

*insert five minutes of Photoshop activity*

Image

Okay, the swirl needs work - too much circle, not enough swirl and it's not nearly as visually complex and interesting as the K-star as it stands - but you get the idea.

Incidently, is everyone jumping the gun here or do we know it's going to be Comic Genesis?

The 3rd one from the left looks like with a few minor modifications, it could look really good.

I really like the first one for the "omic" dimension fix, but I like the way "enesis" was handled in this one:

So a combination of those two would win my vote.
You're awesome for drawing all those logos while we just sit here and boss you around in our armchairs.

I agree with Neko. The third one is my favorite.

Er... *shifty look* Can I... request a change of font? I never really liked that rigid square one you used. It just looks kinda brutal and harsh to me.

Doodle created while trying to get a swirlier swirl. Apart from that, I'll wait until we actually get the new name.

The vote is 62 to 18 in favour of Comic Genesis and several people have experimented with possible icons for that name...

What do you want to bet that we end up Webcomicspace???

Wow, it looks like comicgenesis is winning by a fairly large margin. I don't think anyone would be disapointed with either of the options, but the word genesis is so cool. I meen cmon, who doesnt want to be part of a genesis? Plus, the new logo is like, almost finished.
