While reading a comic book, I have some problems with seeing some characters in this older copy of a book (the Chinese character is sometimes too dark to distinguish strokes and scanning doesn't help).

Here is the work that I have done so far. Thank you for any help finding the missing characters (I don't need the translations, per se but just seeing a clear copy of the character would be helpful).

There are multiple questions because I want to show the work in context. I could break these up into smaller questions but that would not be helpful to other learners (learning conversation) and would unnecessarily clog the website.

Pane 1 ( ? ➜ missing character )


Pane 2 ( ? ➜ missing character )

那些都小事一(?):-> looks like 香 with a radical

Pane 3 ( ? ➜ missing character )



Pane 4 ( ? ➜ missing character )



Pane 5 ( ? ➜ missing character )

你一定想問我为社么知道对不对?:You must know what to ask me for, right?
