"Go, Speed Racer, Go!"

[Eddy]

One of the icons of manga and anime has always been Speed Racer. I had no idea it started off as a manga until recently, but I think everyone's familiar with the opening theme song and that iconic shot of Mifune Gō aka Speed Racer jumping out of his car.

As a parting gift for one big Speed Racer fan, some of the guys here drew this piece as a "thank you" for all their friendship and help throughout the years.

I took off all the signatures in this scan, so can anyone name which artist drew which part of the illustration? I'll send a small box of WildStorm comics to the first winner who guesses right and bonus points for correctly naming who did the checkered flag!
