"German East Africa, January 1917" was the eighth issue of Dark Horse Comics' Young Indiana Jones Chronicles series. It was based on the television episode "Congo, January 1917," and was released on September 1, 1992.
Indy and Remy have crossed the African contintent, been threatened by disease, and are now in the hands of a German -- but one devoted to their recovery, not their deaths. Albert Schweitzer, the renowned physician and humanitarian, is in Africa trying to save the world's most precious treasure: human lives. Unfortunately, there's a war going on, and the other side doesn't see his value, just his nationality.
