Biology is such a vast and critical subject it can not be explained or understood through cartoons.

On the contrary, cartoons can be very effective in understanding the complex pathways that systems are!

Although it is not entirely possible to understand Biology via cartoons and graphs but I think the aim of including these is to make the principles of biology easy to catch and long-remembered and it is an effective approach rather.
