Set: CotJE
Number: 47
Illustrator: David Auden Nash


Key-seeker and Gatekeeper from the Secrets of Arkham expansion appear to pay homage to the original Ghostbusters film. In this artwork the Gatekeeper is wearing a red dress very similar to what Sigourney Weaver's character wore while under possession of the Gatekeeper, and the Key-seeker (Key Master) is examining a large dog statuette. 


Edit: I was able to reach out and speak with David Auden Nash, the artist for Key-seeker, about the possible Ghostbusters reference. David did not remember the particulars regarding the art directives he received from FF for this piece, but did acknowledge the art director(s) for the game may have intentionally included the reference.

This Ghostbusters reference makes perfect sense given CoC also includes a card called The Carpathian. They must be big Ghostbusters fans over there at FF. I wonder how they felt about the newest version.
