The iTunes Terms and Conditions Are Now A 94-Page Graphic Novel

Have you ever read the entirety of Apple’s Terms and Conditions for using iTunes?

Of course you haven’t. No one has. Aside from a handful of people in a legal department in Cupertino, no human has ever read that document. Oh, and comic artist R. Sikoryak can be added to that short list as well, because he has performed the Herculean task of not only reading the entire thing, but adapting it into an entirely new medium as well.

Over 94 pages, Sikoryak, who has drawn for The New Yorker, The Onion, GQ, MAD, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, manages to pay homage to some of the greatest and recognizable names in comics by recreating pages from their work. Aping their styles perfectly, he replaces the protagonists with a matching rendering of Steve Jobs, reciting the widely spread and as widely unread document.

Steve Jobs in a page from Dragon Ball Z, hyping himself up to the Apple Music end-user agreement? It’s there. Marjane Satrapi‘s family gathering around to listen to the Apple founder regale them with tales of iBooks store product usage rules? Sure thing. Steve Jobs as John Romita’s Peter Parker contemplating waivers and indemnity while kissing Mary Jane Watson? It’s all there.

Sikoryak placed all the pages on his Tumblr while making the book, but now that he’s finally done, publisher Drawn & Quarterly will release a colored edition of the black and white pages posted online.

The book will be out in March, and you can check a couple highlights taken from the Tumblr below.
