also, are you doing research to see specific colours or buildings etc, or are you just freestylin

Some research and some guessing. This one for example:

I found out it was in Columbus Circle, NYC and I managed to find a color picture of the Coca Cola sign and a couple of the buildings. I also found modern pictures of the taxis. Since it's NYC, I assumed that the guy had a Yankees cap on (dark blue).

Stuff like the peoples' clothes or that billboard in the back that probably changed by the month or the dozen other buildings, I just guessed on.

Also that Coca Cola billboard is pretty neat. If you can't tell, it was a giant thermometer.

Childen gathered at a comic book stand, Romford Market, England, 1953?

First off, this image is dated 1947 but being as I had to look up each of these comics, I know that the latest one in there was 1953, so that's the date I'm going with.
Second: this picture was hell because I had to look up each of these comics. The majority of them had direct references but there were an odd few which either 1. I could not find an English version of the comic cover or 2. I couldn't figure out what fucking comic it was.

The colors on each of the comics are amazing, well done.

The rest of the world, mostly people's skin and the concrete, feels undersaturated (or in the case of the concrete, too much of a light blue)

I don't think the problem is with saturation. I think the word everybody is looking for is "flat". Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like OP is just assigning color to the pictures rather than taking into account the actual physics of light. The comics look great, because they generally have very vibrant and clear colors, but the more complicated parts of the picture like skin color (which can contain an incredible amount of tones from every part of the spectrum) and clothes and the environment will need more attention to detail, things like time of day, light bouncing, ect.

It's good that OP is researching the pictures to figure out which colors to use.

EDIT: This is a good interview I saw a while ago regarding the subject, talking about a couple important concepts

Very helpful, thank you.

I retouched a few of the pictures I already had done. Should look a little better now.
