Given Eco’s association with the Italian comic magazine Linus I would expect some or most of the following to be among his favourites:
Asterix
B.C.
Bristow
Calvin & Hobbes
Corto Maltese
Crock
Dick Tracy
Dilbert
Doonesbury
Fearless Fosdick
Get Fuzzy
Girighiz
Krazy Kat
Li'l Abner
Maakies
Maus
Peanuts
Pogo
Robotman
Valentina
The Wizard of Id

I think any definitive list will be in one of the Linus issues, from Ecolinus:

A million likes for your post, Didi! Thanks again. You into comics/manga/graphic novel at all?

Not as much as others here but the interest has increased over the past couple of years solely due to the posts here which I read with great interest given my limited knowledge of the genre. I have been a long time fan of novels in collage, but that is different.

The last manga oriented book I read, which I do not see mentioned in the woods (apart from you mentioning the separate novel), was Rampo’s The Strange Tale of Panorama Island illustrated by Suehiro Maruo which I enjoyed immensely, more than the novel itself.
