This is strip 7 in a series of 7 celebrating all that is awesome about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I hope you enjoyed this week long resurgence (or “awakening”:) of Outnumbered, I sure have. What an added treat to have so many great artists I respect jump in and help by illustrating 4 of the 7 strips with me. Thank you guys, so so much. I hate to say it, but I think this may be the swan song to Outnumbered. My limited “free time” to do this strip is even less than ever. I don’t want to shut the doors though. Let’s keep them open for now so I can occasionally do something crazy like we did this week, kay? Just lower your expectations from what happened this week and no one gets hurt! Love to everyone that has followed this strip. You’re the best! -Tom B.
Hey Outnumbered fans. I hate to say this but after 140 Outnumbered strips and never missing a week’s posting, I’m taking a hiatus. I love Outnumbered (and YOU that follow it) and its been a labor of love for me to create it every week. I have just gotten to the point where I’ve over committed on other work and travel (and they pay, so they get first priority) and I need to have some free time for my family also. So, for at least the next few months of this summer, I’m taking a break. I hate doing it and it was a super hard decision. I WILL make an OUTNUMBERED book someday soon. That was a mini goal of mine from the start and I think I have enough strips (plus sketches and maybe some new ones I can create just for that book) to pull it off. I will keep you posted on that too. Make sure you follow me on Instagram (tombancroft1), Twitter (tombancroft1), Facebook, tumblr, and our Bancroft Brothers Facebook fan page. Its been my honor to bring you a slice of my- um- the Crosby Family’s life every week for the last 2.5 years. Thank you for your support and love. -Tom Bancroft
I’ve been wanting to make a T-shirt with the entire Crosby (Outnumbered) family and now I have one! I was the first to order one too! So, if you’re interested, go to TeePublic and get you or a friend one. It makes a great gift, I think.

Tons of different sizes and colors are available too.
