The cursed man is back. Yes, sweetheart, it is already said in the first two volumes that the Devil is making a deal with Lincoln. We can imagine how this could have ended based on the volume 3 cover alone. There Lincoln can be seen lying wounded, drunk, and / or lifeless in an alley on the ground. The shadow on the left side of the image clearly indicates that Beelzebub may have his demon hands in the game. or not?
Lincoln is in the gutter and the Devil throws his teeth!

If you want to know more about the basic Lincoln setup, I can give you both of my reviews Domain 1 And the Domain 2 We recommend. Cowboy Lincoln is a 19-year-old loser that nobody cares about. Ergo decides on his own that he doesn’t care about other sentient beings either. He just does what he does, attacks others and always gets his best in all of his activities. Contrition? nothing. However, no one but God Lincoln takes care of Lincoln, making him immortal and accompanying him for a part of his life. But Satan doesn’t let that sit on him for long and also gets close to Lincoln, even if he has a certain amount of suspicion towards Beelzebub, after all, he and his counterpart are only pursuing their own intentions anyway.
In the third volume, Lincoln moves to New York City at the turn of the century, albeit not entirely voluntarily. Satan takes him into the big city without Lincoln having a choice – who gets into a drink competition with the Devil? Once the demon reaches town, he has plans for Lincoln. He is said to be part of a gang in a bank robbery. All in all, the big city seems to be the perfect place for someone like Lincoln to indulge his passions and make big bucks. At least that is the thought of Satan. Lincoln ends the hustle and bustle relatively soon, reporting the gang to the police. Meanwhile, Lincoln met a rebellious young man in prison, who was also subjected to minor harassment. When God finally freed Lincoln from prison, Lincoln took care of the youth, albeit involuntarily. It turns out that the young man, the Devil, is supposed to be killed, as is often the case. So, Lincoln once again does a short job with the minions of Satan and frees the boy from the bonds of the new gang. Then Lincoln, God and the boy go into hiding, even if their cover is revealed relatively quickly and there is a major confrontation.
The first page of the book pulls the reader back in and explains why reading Lincoln is something to look forward to. The protagonist stands in the shallow waters by the sea and “fish” in it with his pistol as soon as he shot the fish. This is a sample Lincoln again, for which a new word must be entered in the German language. Something like “Build a Lincoln” or “You’ve been hanging around pretty much,” if you want to describe an odd act that seems questionable, but somehow get away with it. In another context of the story, the artist’s family gives us once again the tried and tested ingredients of a Lincoln adventure with much confusion and plans put in place that were frustrated by Lincoln, and one or another outbreak of violence. At the end of the story, a small shootout awaits us at the end of the tape, which ultimately leads to Lincoln standing as a NYPD cop at the end of the story. As you can see, it’s still exciting and unpredictable.
Satan finally reveals his plans, even if they don’t go as he had hoped in conjunction with the protagonist. Lincoln just has no interest in Satan and only allows himself to fall into “one side”. This keeps the stories fresh and doesn’t wear out in volume three either. As a reader, you don’t know what Lincoln will do on the next page of the book, as in principle it is always the opposite of what the story actually intended. Additionally, there is a new environment in the big city, which should also be good for more novels and have a lot of potential. Who knows where Lincoln will go next? Volume 4 and others have already found their way onto my shelf, and more on that later here. Still great!
