Event Description: 

Join New Yorker cartoonist R. Sikoryak for the launch of his latest graphic novel, Terms and Conditions. For this project, Sikoryak tackles an infamously dense legal document, the iTunes Terms and Conditions.  In a word for word 94-page adaptation, Sikoryak hilariously turns the agreement on its head – each page features an avatar of Apple cofounder 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, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, or Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant.

A book signing will follow Sikoryak's presentation.

 

Sponsored by the Department of English and the School of Individualized Study.
