Great looking book! 

Does that crease break color? I'm guessing it does, but a little hard to tell from the scan.

Thank you. Closer pics

Wow. That might press out.

If you're planning to sell it or have it slabbed (or both) I'd definitely have it pressed.

Just make sure it's someone reliable who will NOT press it if they think it'll hurt the spine, pop a staple, etc.

Do not press IMO.

I'm getting 50/50 on this. What argument against is most compelling if you don't mind me asking. Excuse my ignorance but ive only had a few books pressed in my day by joey maybe 10 years ago and I wasn't all that impressed at the process

There's 1 flaw that might be removed via pressing. I personally think the comic looks great and doesn't 'need' it. The cover is flat and beautiful.

Tough question.  I have one person I use for cleaning/pressing needs, and he would let me know if he could safely press something like that without causing more harm.  His expertise is with older age books too.  Without having the book in hand, I can’t give an honest opinion.  Good luck!! (thumbsu
