Well, that news of handing back Keen Halloween to its creators just got a little bit more interesting. Keen Halloween last year was a joint venture between Steam Crow owners Daniel and Dawna Davis and Square-Egg Ent, the same folks responsible for Phoenix Comicon. After the news broke that Square-Egg was no longer involved in Keen Halloween, Daniel Davis announced that Keen Halloween would no longer be happening.

The how and whys of the Keen Halloween deal is what interest me but until that story comes out, Square-Egg Ent has announced Thrill Halloween which seems to be Keen Halloween under their own name. The event will be taking place both in Phoenix and Fresno this year, along with returning Fan Fest in Phoenix and Minnesota.
