Before deciding on media, you might first want to define what kind of effects you are trying to achieve. My choice of media is FB Matte and Prisma colored pencils. I use turpentine + oil mixture to smooth it out.

Using these materials, colors are typically muted. I'll never get vivid and bright colors.

Generally speaking, FB matte papers are much easier and more receptive to hand coloring. If you fancy getting into the world of hand-coloring, you might just start using them.

Here's my comic releaf on this subject.
