This paper 
has a graphene structure with compressive strength of 361 MPa.

However, according to http://www.zeitnews.org/node/2449 (which discusses 
a folded form that has even higher compressive strength) the compressive 
strength of "real" graphene is less than 2 GPa. "As is well known, 
graphene can't withstand any compression," one researcher says - but 
that is presumably a unidirectional compression rather than an uniform one.
