Apple’s Boring Legal Notifications Are Now A Brilliant Graphic Novel

Apple’s Boring Legal Notifications Are Now A Brilliant Graphic Novel

Millions of people use iTunes. Nobody reads the walls of text that show up every time Apple’s music software updates. Wait, you do? You’re a freak. So is Robert Sikoryak, who’s made a graphic novel out of the corporately mandated agreement, riffing off comics greats like Frank Miller and Charles Schulz.

iTunes Terms And Conditions started on Tumblr, with Sikoryak delivering a page a day featuring Steve Jobs spouting all the things you’re agreeing to without knowing it.

The various entries are based on the draftsmanship of the creators of Tintin, Cathy, the Silver Age version of the Flash and many others.

It’s creepy and hilarious seeing the iconic Apple CEO as a beefed-up superhero or grim samurai figure and part of the fun for knowledgeable comics fans is in figuring out who Sikoryak is aping.

Sikoryak’s work has been collected in two books so far, The Unabridged Graphic Adaptation iTunes Terms and Conditions, Part A & B and The Unabridged Graphic Adaptation iTunes Terms and Conditions, Part C & D. This might be the best thing to ever happen to the people who write legal liability protocols.

  • Lost me after the 2nd frame… terms and conditions will never… ever… be readable unless they’re done by a company such as Virgin!

    • yeah pretty much. got one pane in a realised it was actually just the terms and conditions and zoned out.
