Where can you go to find Batman, Bart Simpson, a man pounding a spike into his nose, and a baby wearing a superhero’s cape and mask all in the same place? You need go no farther than Chris Yambar’s front yard.

Yambar, a West Side resident and nationally known comic artist and writer, hosted the third annual Lawn-Con on Saturday afternoon. The event lures scores of comic afficionados and creators alike, all in a venue where they can mix and mingle without charge. It included vendors selling comic books and memorabilia, a costume contest, and a sideshow demonstration.

“It’s amazing the amount of pull [Yambar] has in the industry,” said Murad Shorrab, a 29-year-old West Sider who lives just a couple streets away from Yambar. “Last year I came here and met Ron Frenz, the guy who does the ‘Thor’ comics. He was just sitting at a table under a tent and I got to walk right up and talk to him.”
