Crikey, lad, Wallace and Gromit have returned to the iPhone and iPod Touch, this time in comic form.

The Aardman Animations moneyspinners' televisual adventures have been available from the iTunes store for a while now, but UK publisher Titan has just posted four new stories in the App Store.

Wallace & Gromit

Three of the stories - Where There's Muck, There's Brass, The W Files and Parts and Labour - have been written old 2000AD hand Dan Abnett. The art comes courtesy of Jimmy Hansen with colour work by John Burns. A fourth book, penned by Simon Furman, was drawn by Barry Spiers.

Three of the four comic tales cost 59p a pop, but the 60-panel - one panel per page - The W Files is currently available as a freebie.
