I like it when there is a theme to them.

I totally agree!

I'm all for the idea of using multiple covers for experimentation, or a way of testing response on the newsstand, but sometimes, I don't see that much thought going into their creation, or across the theme. Two or three covers offers the chance for variation on a theme, keeping it tight and creative, without going into the realms of self-indulgence, and losing sight of your audience.
+1 I hate settling, I've done it twice before and have vowed to never do it again since.

Major point!

The only time it drives me crazy is when I can't find the particular cover I'm after, I can't say I ever had trouble getting it, but sometimes it has involved visiting countless stores which is rather annoying and time consuming!

I loved multi-covers at first because they were special and each cover had amazing style. Now they're a dime a dozen and in a lot of cases doesn't look like much thought was put in producing them.
