Terms and Conditions (Paperback)

R. Sikoryak


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.
