We’ve all seen those horrendously long Terms and Conditions documents with every bit of Apple software we download, including the iTunes Terms and Conditions.

But what if you could see them in an illustrated version? We all might read them in that case.

These illustrated panels, each drawn in a different comic book style after famous other cartoonists, put Steve Jobs front and center of the otherwise dry, dusty legal disclaimers from Apple.

Totally worth a look, right?

American cartoonist Robert Sikyorak is best known for his mashup of high and low culture, producing Masterpiece Comics like Dostoyevsky Comics (Crime and Punishment drawn in Bob Kane–era Batman style) and Waiting to Go (Waiting for Godot starring Beavis and Butt-Head).

He’s taken to drawing panels that illustrate the iTunes Terms and Conditions document using different art styles from the history of the funny pages, including comics that look like Little Lulu, Dick Tracy, Rube Goldberg, and Tin Tin.

Sikoryak uploads a new page every day to his Tumblr account, and hopes to draw “The complete, unabridged legal agreement.” That’s a lot of boring legalese, but at least it’s interesting to look at.
