Probably some combination of time and money. Image isn't a traditional publisher, so the creators are involved more in the book production than they'd be otherwise, which is probably why some of the more artist-based creators seem to get them out faster and some other "no brainers" seem to lag forever.

i liked Black Magic. Good art by Nicola Scott. Not the best thing ever but certainly very readable.

Right Nicola Scott. I'm not a fan but thinking about it, deej would probably like the art.
Irony and subtly are the first casualties
in the eternal battle of wits between people divided by a common language. So read between the lines or you'll fall through the cracks...
....Quoting other people is no substitute for thinking for yourself...

I can pick up the first Black Magic tpb cheap so I'll give it a go.
The first story/trade reads more like a prelude but still interesting and I like Scott's artwork.
Besides the often mentioned Descender, Low and Fade Out
I enjoyed Monstress (Image ; Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda)
A post apocalyptik fantasy story about mythical creatures, humans and monsters on both sides.
Alex and Ada (Image; Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn)
SF story: The protagonist Alex gets a realistic female android as a birthday present fom
his grandmother (sic)
What could also have been a ( more or less) interesting porn story, is a very nice variation on the theme:
'What makes us human?
The artwork is a little bit flat but still a very good book.
Minimum Wage (Image, Bob Fingerman)
A slice of life story about a down on his luck artist and his various relationships,
I enjoyed the first story (reprinted as Maximum Minimum Wage, Image ) a bit more
but it is a very entertaining book.
Sunstone (Image; Stjepan Sejic )
The up and downs of a lesbian (SM) couple.Bondage,love, friendship told in very sweet and downright funny way.
The New Deal (Dark Horse, Jonathan Case)
Lady Killer (Dark Horse;Joelle Jones and Jamie S. Rich)
Bowery Boys (Dark Horse; Cory Levine, Ian Bertram and Brent McKee)
Bandette (Dark Horse; Paul tobin and Colleen Coover)
Blacksad:Amarillo (Dark Horse;Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo guarnido)
Triggerman (Titan; Matz, Walter Hill and Jef)
6 great crime comics from brutal New York gang wars (Bowery) to a 30s society story( New Deal),
from the timeless Bandette to always a feast Blacksad.
