I need a scanner!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 19, 2013, 7:43 AM
Somehow I ALWAYS forget to update this. >.>

Anyway, the scanner I have now is getting really old - so old it doesn't even know what Windows 7 is. I have to use VMware with a virtual Windows XP partition to scan. But that's not the problem. The problem is it started scanning with stripes! Loads of them. And it's especially bad for color images.

Do you guys have any recommendations? Something not too expensive, but with nice quality.
Also, is it worth investing in a A3 scanner and working on B4 paper format? - I think it's nice to have slightly more room and I could also have proper bleed margins and other stuff. But I'm still not sure, cause they seem a bit too expensive, and I don't know if the cheapest ones still have a good quality. They're probably better than my antique piece anyway, but I have no idea of how modern scanners are.

I enjoy love am obsessed with making up stories and drawing comics. I only wish my drawing hand could mach the speed of my brain. During the time it takes to draw a page, I get ideas for another 20 or more. That's how Miraj was born. I actually started drawing it with no plot in mind. The plot just built itself while I drew the first 6 (crappy) pages. By the time I reached 150 pages I had ideas for so many chapters, I was afraid to count them (and still am).

My comics! (in no particular order)

Hi ^_^
I don't know if you remember me, but I'm from mangamagazine. 
Anyway, just read your profile description, I'm the same way with coming up with other stories as I work on a comic. I wish my drawing abilities were faster too. :P
You have a really cool gallery! Keep up the good work! :)
