    And others followed in his footsteps: Jefferson Airplane, The Beatles, Frank Zappa, lots of others, all had their own labels with major-label distribution.And then the majors Borg-ed the indpendents… Ryko, Rhino, Mammoth – all whollyowned subsidiaries of majors.And then the majors started setting up phony "independents" to get new acts cred – i think it was Guns'n'Roses whose first albumn was relkeased under a phony "independent" label created just for that purpose. (If they weren't the ones, it was Nirvana, i'm pretty sure.)Sort of like the independent comic distribution market, come to think.

    I don't profess to know the industry well at all. But I always thought creator-owned companies like Image let their "indie" titles into the market without "label encouraged editing". Where countless tiny labels exist in the music industry for that specific "indie cred without needing actual indie cred" … it would seem in today's depleting comic market, companies like Image exist as a haven Indie creators strive to get to… right?

    this is a misleading story, and Sinatra had nothing to do with Image Comics.
