Nice. Not as good.

I think the SFWA one is a reference to Margaret Atwood's comment that science fiction is all about talking squids in space (in support of her strange opinion that she doesn't write science fiction).
Nice/not so good is a matter of personal taste. I like both shirts!
If a giant squid started attacking my town, I'd be singing "Go! Go! Godzilla!" But then, I'm a weirdo who listens to classical music and death metal, and reads about string theory while watching professional wrestling. There are so many interesting things in this world!
That was "talking squid in outer space", specifically to distinguish sf from _Oryx and Crake_.
This being the internets, the meme then got totally out of hand to the point of developing its own site: http://www.talkingsquidsinouterspace.com/
I have to admit I like the 2nd design immensely. Perhaps it is just personal taste, but having some experience with making t-shirts I'd say you were onto a winner there! Well done - will there be any more?
