the comment field isn't available for display in the filter results. Please reference (vote/watch) this issue - JRACLOUD-2734 

However, consider the following solution. If you do not already have it, add Automation for Jira addon app. and use the comment trigger to copy the comment into a custom text field (e.g. "latest comment"). There is a free version (Lite) that will also work but given you are going to be working off comments then you likely will blow past the monthly allotment of 300 automations.

Thank you : )

You can also do with with a SIL scripted custom field. Using the "power custom fields" addon.

string[] lastCommentDetails = getLastComment(key);

    return lastCommentDetails["text"];
return "";

There are multiple Jira apps that will display the last comment as a custom field.

You can then include the custom field's column in Issue Navigator and your use case is solved!
