Come out to The ToonSeum and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a whole new way, as New Yorker cartoonist R. Sikoryak reads from and signs copies of his astonishing new graphic novel, Terms and Conditions. Sikoryak will be at The ToonSeum on Friday, March 17 at 7 pm. The event, which is being co-sponsored by Pittsburgh’s Copacetic Comic Company, is free and open to the public. Signed copies of Sikoryak’s acclaimed Terms and Conditions will be available for purchase.
This promises to be an event like no other. 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.
Join us for a presentation with Sikoryak on the process behind Terms and Conditions, followed by a book signing.
The ToonSeum, Pittsburgh’s Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art, is located at 945 Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh, PA, 15216, in the heart of the city’s historic Cultural District.
