The Atlantic Monthly is an American magazine nationally known for its literary and cultural commentary.
After the Ghostbusters garnered the press' attention following the Sedgewick Hotel bust, several newspapers and magazines published articles about them. The October 1984 issue featured caricatures of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler chasing a ghost on the front cover. The tagline on the front cover read, "THE POLITICS OF THE NEXT DIMENSION DO GHOSTS HAVE CIVIL RIGHTS?"
A framed copy of The Atlantic Monthly from 1984 that featured the Ghostbusters is kept in Egon's foot locker.
