Interlac – The Language of the 30th Century

November 16, 2017|In General

Interlac – the intergalactic universal language of the 30th century and the Legion of Super-Heroes – was first referenced in Adventure Comics No. 379, March 1969. It was turned into a tangible alphabet with Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen and letterer John Costanza in Legion of Super-Heroes v2 No. 311, May 1984.

Taking the original symbols for Interlac, I created a new typeface for personal use.

Original Interlac Alphabet

The original alphabet from Legion of Super-Heroes v2 No. 311.

The typeface is provided in OTF and TTF formats for Mac and Windows users.

The character key diagram below is also included in the download to identify and access the Legion character symbols, or you can use the character/glyphs palette available in many apps now. You’ll achieve the intended results by using font metrics in programs which support them.

Basic punctuation symbols have been added for clearer sentence building, and 30th century monetary credits get their own symbol.
