SkekSil: Oh no, the Gelfing is going to heal the Crystal-
SkekUng presses a button to summon a sword and lunges it at Jen.
Kira and the other Skeksis are stunned.
SkekUng: It's a weapon, not a ceremonial tool.

...What would you rather them do if the species is going extinct, kill themselves with the swords by fighting in a duel?

But in order to survive, they shouldn't be killing each other off. Oo;;

But they ended up banishing the loser anyways, basically sentencing him to death anyways... so why not do it with a sword...

...Okay, point.

Ah well, not all the Skeksis are very bright anyway. I think most of their intelligence went to the Uru/Mystics. >>

Neither of them got the agile and graceful genes though...

I love The Dark Crystal, but yeah, parts of it are silly. It's not as bad as Willow though! ;D Funny strip, I'll have to check the rest of them out. :>

Even though i find the strip funny i have not seen what it is parodying so i don't really understand it.
I like your style. The bold vector look is overused but you do it well. I cannot offer much critique on this piece because i don't really know the original look of the characters or what is going on, all i can say really is i think with such a short strip you should try and make the last two panels different other than zooming in on the characters and changing the text.
