If the last time you were familiar with Image was the 1990s, then it might make your comment make more sense. For the past decade or more, Image has been very dedicated to releasing quality comics that are focused on creators. Yes, they were everything that was wrong with comics in the 1990s. But many of the immature creators left and those who remained grew up or doubled-down on creator's rights. They started quietly wooing series to their imprint that had been independent or very infrequent, such as Mike Allred's Madmen, Stray Bullets, Astro City,
Some of the series are brilliant re-imagings of old series, like Glory and Prophet (which is what Moebius would have done if he worked for Image). Others are brand new and critical darlings, like Chew, Saga, The Manhattan Projects, Astro City, Jack Staff, Phonogram, Invincible, The Walking Dead and Pretty Deadly, just to name a few. Simply put, Image has done a complete turnaround from the most pandering comics to some of the best. I think if you looked at them again, you'd find that they are not the company they were 20 years ago.
