Question about Japan

Why is comic books speech so different from regular speech? For example, the overuse of the "you" pronouns, and how their meanings seem very different from real life (like they sound more respectful or less condescending in comic books). Do you just understand it in another way (as if comic books speech is simply a different dialect) or is it more complex than that?
I hope this wasn't a weird question. Thank you very much!
