Voice actors Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee, writer Paul Dini and game director Sefton Hill took the stage at Comic-Con International in San Diego to talk about Batman: Arkham City, the painfully anticipated sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, itself the most critically acclaimed video game ever (according to Guinness Book of World Records).
