Has Flashpoint Become Fiction In The New DCU?

A couple of panels in the new issue of Justice League Dark #3 may be rather revealing. They appear to show the Flashpoint comics Secret Seven and Deadman And The Flying Graysons that starred Shade and Deadman, existing in the new DCU. Do they reveal the fact that, when caught in Flashpoint flux, The Flash translated the Flashpoint reality into comic book stories that appear in the newly created reality? Is this the way the Meta-Vest is dealing with conflicting realities? Or is this a simple in joke not to be taken seriously at all?

You decide.

UPDATE: Artist Mikel Janin pops by the thread to let us know. "It's obviously a joke. As Shagamu said, these are the covers of Peter's Secret Seven and my Deadman, so we did like the idea of putting our Flashpoint comic-books there. Don't look for more"
