Image Comics eventually lost two founders: Rob Liefeld was fired, and Jim Lee sold his {{Wildstorm}} Studios to Creator/DCComics after leaving Image[[note]]There was even a CrisisCrossover, ''Shattered Image'', devoted to writing Wildstorm's titles out of the Image universe, and vice versa.[[/note]]. Over the years, Image started GrowingTheBeard: they got a central editor to help control the schedule, and the quality of the art and maturity of the storylines started looking up somewhat. They also hired some other writers and with this they got some more diversity, with titles like Jeff Smith's ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'', Creator/KurtBusiek's ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' and Robert Kirkman's ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' and ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead''. Whereas the original titles had at least paid lip service to being in some kind of Image SharedUniverse, these more recent titles have tended to exist as entirely independent works. Kirkman has recently been bumped up to the equivalent of founder status, forming his own studio, Skybound Entertainment . ''Spawn'' and ''Savage Dragon'' are also still published, and are better-regarded than in their heyday, whilst Image is giving a chance to many writers whose ideas would never be published by the "Big Two". Rob Liefeld even managed to make up with his ex-partners at Image, thanks to Kirkman's intervention, and managed to successfully relaunch a few of his old Extreme Studios properties, though he is still is no longer a partner in the publisher. Still, Image Comics is very much remembered for its gritty [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age]] series. Their main competitor nowadays is Creator/DarkHorseComics rather than Marvel and DC, as both companies tend to release similar off-the-cuff, independent works.

In 2013 a documentary about the foundation of Image called "The Image Revolution" was made, though it did not get an official release until 2016
