It's called "Nine" and commemorates the nine people who were killed in the shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina this week. The New Yorker posted it on Twitter yesterday, and artist Barry Blitt bleakly told the magazine:

The June 29 issue cover depicts nine birds flying from the historic church.
