Jonathan Brown
He's in there somewhere
First Appearance: Joyce and Walky! March 2010 (Subscriber-only strip)

Jonathan Brown is the oldest of Joyce Brown's siblings in both the Walkyverse and Dumbing of Age.


John was conceived when his parents were still in college. By all accounts, the pregnancy was unplanned, and his mother dropped out of school as a result.

Despite what can only be described as tremendous pressure from Carol Brown, Jonathan does not seem to have married or fathered any children.

He attended his Joyce's wedding to David Walkerton.


  • Jonathan was first mentioned in It's Walky!, and shown in a Brown family portrait. However, the strip doesn't identify which brother is which.
    • Willis later matched faces to names on tumblr.

      He's the right most brother in green.

  • The Brown siblings all attended Joyce and Walky's wedding, but none of them were identified by name in the panel except Jocelyne.
  • Like all of his siblings, his first name starts with the letter "J."
  • Apparently, His name was misspelled as "Bobby" in one strip. His name was never Bobby it was a typo. [1] This was corrected in the revised version of the strip. [1]

Just Hangin' Out With My Family Edit

Though John was not present for Freshman Family Weekend (something about being "too married"), he was mentioned several times.

Trivia: Edit

  • Jonathan says that he is married, though it is implied that he isn't really.
      • He got married a year ago (DoA time) in India, but Joyce has never met his wife. They apparently go on quite a few church missions together. [Citation needed]
  • He seems to like apples.
  • He likes the name "Jacqueline" despite its connection to the Kennedy family, and suggested it as a name for his little sister Joyce.
  • His first physical appearance in DoA has been in a flashback in a Patreon-only bonus strip.
