I think that's a misreading.
The framing device with McCoy and Scotty is no more than what it is presented as - Scotty explaining to McCoy the theory behind alternate timelines.
I don't see anything in Scotty and McCoy's discussion that states, or even implies, that Scotty is telling McCoy a story. Those bookend panels work entirely on their own without the Mirror Universe story.
In fact, the narration of the comic makes it very clear that the Mirror Universe is real within the context of its fictional story, as it explicitly states "a new reality is born." That narration isn't from Mirror Spock's point-of-view, either; it's an omniscient narration.
