Ralph Bakshi (the animated THE HOBBIT, WIZARDS and FRITZ THE CAT, etc) is Kickstarting his new series of shorts including THE LAST DAYS OF CONEY ISLAND. The few shots of the new project are amazing, padded with a ton of his 30-year-old films, and sounding like "same old Fritz the Cat audio".

According to the site, "The stories take place on and around Coney’s garish, freaky midways and in it's dark alleyways. They discuss America: Kennedy’s assassination, the mafia, Bobby Dylan, Vietnam, Dick Tracy, Miss America, and more."

My initial reaction sways wildly between "visionary and thrilling" and "you're resting on some mighty old laurels, Ralph". What do you think?
