A Cartoonist Turned The iTunes Terms And Conditions Into A Graphic Novel That Is Worth Reading
We have to admit that every time we sign up for a new account or download a new program, we just scroll to the bottom and check the box that verifies that you agree to the terms and conditions. For all we know, we could have just agreed to hand over our first-born child, or flat out have just forked our souls over to Apple on a silver platter.
But this creative cartoonist has taken the boring iTunes terms and conditions and turned it into a graphic novel that is actually worth reading.
Convincing iTunes users to read the fine print one panel at a time, The Unabridged Graphic Novel: iTunes Terms And Conditions was created by American artist Robert Sikoryak and features Steve Jobs as the main character who sports his signature turtleneck with iPhone in hand while standing in a superhero stance in the style that is reminiscent of Marvel Comics' covers of the late 1960s.
Sikoryak's drawings are actually inspired by 95 popular comic artists including Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin, Kate Beaton's Hark! A Vagrant, and Mike Mignola's Hellboy. Jobs is represented in pretty much every comic manner you can think of, from the style of the Avengers to Felix the Cat, making it something worth feasting your eyes on.
The fun illustrations actually make you want to read Apple's terms, although it seems to be pretty standard stuff. While you won't owe them a kidney, it's still good to know just exactly what you are agreeing to.
The Unabridged Graphic Novel: iTunes Terms And Conditions currently consists of 49 pages, with a new page added every day. Readers can check out the latest page on the graphic novel's Tumblr page, or can opt to buy the complete collection of the first two parts for just $8.
