iTunes Terms and Conditions, the Graphic Novel

Robert Sikoryak iTunes graphic novel

Here’s a quirky project we found out about thanks to The Daily Dot—artist Robert Sikoryak has turned Apple’s book-length iTunes terms and conditions into a graphic novel. Two questions that immediately came to mind:

How does one do such a thing in a remotely interesting way? Well, Sikoryak’s 94-page work is actually a tribute to comics creators from many eras, with each page reflecting the storytelling style of an artist or creative team. That’s what’s interesting about it.

Can terms and conditions actually be illustrated? Well, no. The text flows from balloon to balloon, panel to panel, with Steve Jobs spouting dense legal-ese that comedically complements the immediacy of the images. But mostly the text has nothing to do with the pictures.

Here are 10 that really spoke to us; see the rest (he’s posted up to page 54) at itunestandc.tumblr.com.
