If it came preloaded on your computer, ditch it. Comic sans and the rest of those that came with MS Office are for making Bake Sale flyers or softball raffle tickets.

I highly recommend Blambot. There are quite a few free dialogue fonts to choose from. Even the pay fonts are pretty cheap for what you're getting. If you want an easy way to level up the professional look of your comic, get fonts made for comics. Also, pick up a copy of Comicraft's lettering book, 'Comic Book Lettering The Comicraft Way' -- TONS of helpful advise about lettering your comics for a whole $10. Not all of their advice may be applicable to your comic, but the techniques and insight they share comes straight from the pros that pioneered digital comic book lettering. Can't recommend it enough.

It's a nice start, but it doesn't POP. It's not eye-catching. The logo isn't just what goes at the top of the cover or website; it's your sales pitch to get readers to check out your work. I'd recommend using more exciting, dynamic font(s). Lots of great, FREE comic book styled fonts at Blambot.com. Even the pay fonts are pretty cheap considering what you get. Also, check out the logo work done by the guys over at Comicraft: http://new.comicraft.com for examples. Again, nice start, but it needs some punch.

That being said, I don't know your comic or the tone it sets. It could be pretty mellow, so a wild, over-the-top logo might be a misrepresentation of the story you're telling. Things like that also need to be taken into consideration, as well.
