Ever wondered what exactly happened when Image Comics' founders told Marvel Comics they were leaving to start their own company? (And as a bonus, wanted to hear Rob Liefeld do a Southern accent?)

Well, you can get the story straight from three of those founders themselves -- Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, and Marc Silvestri -- in the below clip from the upcoming documentary The Image Revolution.

 

So there you have it. McFarlane did all the talking, Tom DeFalco (who isn't named, but who was Marvel's editor-in-chief at the time) did a comedy fall through a door, and DC thought it was going to get its hands on Marvel's superstars for one brief moment.

The Image Revolution is available for preorder on the Sequart website now and downloads should be ready later this month.

Director Patrick Meany also helmed the documentaries  Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods and Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts.
