Titan Publishing’s Wallace & Gromit digital comic has recorded more than 500,000 downloads of its first free app for the iPhone in the United Kingdom.

The digital comic was released Nov. 7 and has reached No. 3 spot overall for free apps.

The four paid-app episodes of the comic have all reached the top-20 chart for paid apps in the U.K. book chart.

The comics also have been the top free book download in the United States and Canada, and has reached No. 2 in Australia.

“We’ve been amazed at how well our first app has done ‘ Wallace & Gromit is such a great brand, and iPhone users obviously love them as much as we do,’ says Ned Hartley, editor of the Wallace & Gromit digital comics.

The comics also have just become available for download on the PlayStation Portable video game system.
