    I'll second the revolution vote. Those are great themes and do a very good job if you will take the time to learn a little about how they are constructed so you can modify easily.

    I've looked around a bit for magazine themes for wordpress before and these three pages pretty much have the best spread of designs I've seen. My personal favourites are "Morning After", "Revolution" (and "Revolution-X", they're both awesome) and Mimbo.

    Code:
    http://www.soothbrush.com/wordpress-magazine-themes/
    http://www.wpzoom.com/wordpress-themes-sets/45-free-premium-wordpress-themes-with-magazine-or-grid-layouts/
    http://www.themeplayground.com/the-best-wordpress-magazine-themes-available
    
    I'd say the best way to choose is to get under the hood and check the code, make sure you're happy with any plugins that might be required to run the them. I usually choose based on how easily I can modify the existing design to suit my own needs, but then I'm not happy with sloppy code, even if it's "borrowed". :)

    I love this theme but do not understand how to get different images fo each post. I read the instructions but couldn't figure out how to add the images. Typically an image would be added when writing the post. What am I missing? Thanks again. Zack
