I’m not an expert on the history of the Guy Fawkes mask. I first recall seeing it when the V for Vendetta movie came out. I don’t think I ever actually saw the movie though. And I’ve never read the comics. Then I saw it come back with the rise of the anonymous hacker group. Not something I paid a ton of attention to, but I was aware of it. Then the hackers became the hot thing on YouTube, and my daughter was a big fan. So I started seeing the mask a lot. I actually have met a couple members of anonymous over the years, and paid attention whenever the group popped up in the news. But like I said, I’m no expert. My daughter was a hacker for Halloween a year or two ago, so we have a couple of the masks around the house now.
