So, Deadman has been getting clues from the ghost of Sherlock Holmes on the location of the stolen Batman statue (Yes, I really just typed that sentence, and it is 100% true!).
And he has to pass that information on to Sgt. Rock so Easy Company can track it down before Lucifer uses it to torture Batman.
And how, exactly, does Deadman decide to do this?
Deadman decides to talk like "one of those English jokers."
At least, sort of, kind of. "Hark"?? Really?
Now, there is absolutely no indication in the comic of why, exactly, Boston Brand decides to have Bulldozer speak like some Saturday morning cartoon's idea of how an Englishman would speak. I mean, he could have just said "Look at that suspicious cart over there, Sarge," in his regular Bulldozer voice. But no, Deadman opts for "British" for some reason.
I'm sure, somewhere in the recesses of the Haney-verse, it made perfect sense. But we'll never know.
And later, Deadman deliberately goes into his "Limey lingo" again!
"Dash it all"??? "Yon canal"?!?!?!
No, I don't understand, either...
