D&D (2024) New Dungeon Master's Guide Cover Features Venger (From the D&D Cartoons)

The 2024 DMG cover has been revealed by the UK's Mirror newspaper.

The cover of the 2024 Dungeon Master's Guide has been unveiled.... in the Mirror, a mainstream newspaper in the UK.

The cover art features villains (as opposed to the heroes on the Player's Handbook cover revealed last week), with skeletons in the foreground, the classic villains Skylla and Warduke in the mid ground, and then Venger from the 1980s Dungeons & Dragons cartoon looming in the background, and right at the back lurks a dracolich.

The DMG will be released November 12th, 2024.

Legend
It's ominous to me that Uni was missing from the page with the cartoon kids (Presto is touching the unicorn art), Venger was after Uni in the cartoon, and the sketch horse in the background isn't a horse...it's a unicorn. Oh, no.
As much as it would be crazy form that, the Sketched Nightmare(?) seems to have what looks to be two horns.


Granted, Uni could've been corrupted and gained a demon horn.

I've been showing the cartoon to my 5 year old son every Saturday morning. He will dig the cover.

It's not like DMGs ever have great covers and I like this one more than most.
My daughters (now in their 20s) are bigger fans of the D&D cartoon than I am. One of them started crying when I showed her that WizKids is coming out with a Uni miniature. (She played Uni as her first D&D character when she was 4 or 5.)

I don't know how many parents like us there are, but Gen X-ers won't be the only ones appreciating this cover!

That's awesome.

Exactly. Gen X's kids, maybe some of whom were brought up with D&D and our nostalgia for the '80s, will also appreciate this.
 

There have been captions for cover illustrations for lots of years now, so it will say in the book who it it is on the cover. And once they have a name, anyone too young to know of the cartoon can google Venger. It’s not the case that they will be locked in to thinking it’s some funny looking one-horned rando.
