I now go with order you listed, but used to have cover first. However, the I/R & BBW titles have made me discount covers. So many times there would be a real plus sized woman (size 18 and up) on cover and story is about a size 12/14 Average size woman who just has image issues not real size discrimination. Even more frustrating is the I/R cover with wrong size, height or color tone of female and even the white male! In the early 90’s when there were few BWWM photos or art it made more sense except the covers that were obviously cut and paste jobs.
I add reviews now but look at averages then read the longest positive and negative entries.
