Pocket God's digital comic book tie-in has sold more than 500,000 copies.

Ape Entertainment and Bolt Creative have teamed up with Free App A Day to offer issue #1 for free for a limited time to celebrate the milestone.

"What makes Pocket God such a breakout hit is its attention to original characters and stories that play off the sadistic, episodic-based app that allows users to control the lives of a group of energetic pygmy islanders," said Ape co-publisher Brent E. Erwin.

"We're extremely pleased to see how well fans of Pocket God and fans of comic books have taken to the series."

Ape also announced that Pocket God #11 is available to download for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad via iVerse Media.

Pocket God is based on the bestselling iOS game of the same name, created by Bolt co-founders Dave Castelnuovo and Allan Dye.

"We have always had fun developing Pocket God and its many updates, but creating the personalities behind the pygmies and the stories behind them has been one of the most enjoyable aspects of our work," said Castelnuovo.

"The way the Pocket God community has embraced the comic series has been incredible to see and we look forward to continuing to create more quality Pocket God content."

Pocket God is available now through iTunes and the App Store.
