That's why i've only taken it out of the case twice. Once at a convention, second now. It had a hard case around it too, but I didn't realize that after taking it out, I saw a crease at the bottom left. Decreased it's value a crap load..
Edit: I'm not the richest person by any means, (heck, I have a HP computer xD) that was passed down from my brother to me and my other brother. He doesn't care about it, the comic, I mean.
