Manga and Technique?

Question by mcfri: Manga and Technique?
i’m an amateur mangaka (a person who draws comics basically similar to japanese ones).

i’d like to give a more professional touch to my works.

i generally use paper and ink,adding nets at the end,but it always look so untidy and not as clean as those drawn with the pc.

so, should i buy a graphic tablet?wihich one ?
i can’t spend more than 250 euro,and i live in italy.

what about “Manga Studio”? is that a useful software?

what should i really consider to create an high quality comic?i mean,what kind of paper,ink and so on?

for any advice,please contact me,i need info as soon as i can.

thank you so much,

hugs from italy!
