It's pretty damn problematic, but yes, Y: The Last Man does have similar themes. But instead of the women leaving, every single living creature with a Y chromosome is killed by stupidly powerful plague.

It was a decently fun read, but I think less of it now that I'm a bit more knowledgeable about Feminism. {SPOILERS} The Amazons are hyperbolically evil radfems, and to me the series had this air of "See? See how much women would miss us and want us back if we were gone (despite how shitty we treated you)?" that I don't think I'll bother reading through it again. (For the record, society does manage to do just fine without men by the end of the comic.)

Plus, the ending was shite, IMO.
