Art - The art in this strip is done well, especially the lines underneath Francis' eyes demonstrating the extent to which he went to get rid of the points. Also, the Francis' crying is done well and skirts being too over-the top well, without taking away from the strip.
The only thing missing is in the last frame when the frame of the picture, seen in frame one, should have been in the upper right corner for continuity and break the gray up a little.
Story - A nice little story for me since I am an Xbox and Xbox Live user. It is a little frustrating thing to use all the points in you account, even though I think Francis is taking it a little too far :).
I like A Nonny Mouse's idea of having the special avatar being a weird point value because 250 points is a more even number and easier to spend (especially is you are a Guitar Hero/Rock Band fan)
PS - I checked Alexa for the first time in a while and PVPMMS has had a nice little spike in page views. So thanks to everyone for that. To see that stats go here the weirdest part is apparently we are big in South Korea, but hey the more the merrier.
Remember Uncle Jesse was VERY big in Japan, so South Korea I think you! :)
PPS - To channel Peter Potamus - Jim Thorpe did you get that thing I sent you a week ago?
