I made another Hybrid Core parent theme - a light magazine theme with slider, 3-column layout, 5 sidebars, 3 menus, theme settings, and all kinds of additional goodies the framework offers. It's responsive as well.
Instead of relying on the 'standard' magazine theme options (category selectors for the home page), I kind of utilized Justin's ideas from this post - How news themes work.
So I hope you like it. Feedback is really appreciated - it's not the simplest theme so there might be a few (or more) bugs that need busting...
PS: If you decide to use it, make sure to separate all modifications in a child theme - I update regularly and you may loose some important changes.
