To clarify I know about magit-revision i.e. spacebar but there doesn't seem to be a clear way to tell if a commit has more than one line of comments or not.

What I'm talking about is this:

be93ed0 master origin/master Changed the code for foo.

But then if you press spacebar you can see more of the message:

be93ed0 master origin/master Changed the code for foo.

Changed it from bar to foo because of such and such.

Ideally I would like to hit "tab" and the message would expand, but I'm willing to settle for something that just indicates there is more then one line of comments.

Turn on -h ("Show header (++header)") from *magit-log-popup*, it will display commit message's body, author and committer. See also the user option magit-log-revision-headers-format.
