Description or summary of the book: For his newest project, R. Sikoryak tackles the monstrously and infamously dense legal document, iTunes Terms and Conditions, the contract everyone agrees to but no one reads. In a word for word 94-page adaptation, Sikoryak hilariously turns the agreement on its head each page fea- tures an avatar of Apple cofounder and legendary visionary Steve Jobs juxtaposed with a different classic strip such as Mort Walker s Beetle Bailey, or a contemporary graphic novel such as Craig Thompson s Blankets or Marjane Satrapi s Persepolis. Adapting the legalese of the iTunes Terms and Conditions into another me- dium seems like an unfathomable under- taking, yet Sikoryak creates a surprisingly readable document, far different from its original, purely textual incarnation and thus proving the accessibility and flexibili- ty of comics.When Sikoryak parodies Kate Beaton s Hark A Vagrant peasant comics with Steve Jobs discussing objectionable material or Homer Simpson as Steve Jobs warning of the penalties of copyright in-fringement, Terms and Conditions serves as a surreal record of our modern digital age where technology competes with en- duringly ironclad mediums.
