comment What is wrong with Comic Sans?
@dumbledad that's a very simplistic description but in essence yes, the uncanny valley is about things not quite being natural... like comic sans, it's imperfect lettering style is designed to make it appear handwritten (natural, human), but features like every character having a repeated form or the letter spacing/kerning etc. make it not quite natural.
