Join us for the 1st annual Baltimore Comic-Con Live this October 23-25, 2020! We are thrilled to announce the confirmation of our next panel featuring a classic comic series, its writer, and voice talent reenacting the story for the characters with whom they’ve come to be associated.
Writer Mark Waid oversees a live dramatization of scenes from his classic 1996 Kingdom Come DC Comics mini-series, featuring Justice League Unlimited cast members Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman and George Newbern as Superman.
Susan Eisenberg is a professional voice-over artist known for her animation and commercial work. Her breakout role was that of Wonder Woman, aka Princess Diana, in the acclaimed Justice League and Justice League Unlimited television series.

Eisenberg reprised her role as Wonder Woman in 2010 in the Warner Bros. DVD Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Since then, she has voiced the Amazon Princess in video games (DC Universe Online; Injustice: Gods Among Us), features (Justice League: Doom) and television (Wonder Woman short).
George Newbern is best known for providing the voices of Superman and Clark Kent in the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited animated series and the Injustice video game series, and as Sephiroth in the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts series.
