The wrong home?

Here is an illustration from issue fifty-one of the UK Masters of the Universe comic. In this piece we see the Heroic Warriors preparing to head back home, having saved the day once again. You can see on the horizon that "home" is illustrated as the Three Towers. This would appear to be a mistake on the part of the artist. Even though the Three Towers were an important part of the comic by this point, the Heroic Warriors' primary base of operations was still the Royal Palace, as it was at the very beginning of this issue!

From looking at this image, I can't help but think of "The Wizard of Oz," once the Emerald City was discovered. :)

It should be noted that this is one of the German comics which UK writers pretty much completely rewrote rather than translating them. :)

I remember reading these comics in German. Weren´t the Three Towers part of the City of Eternos, at least in these stories? Even as a kid I found that quite distracting.
