try this out:

from sqlalchemy.sql import func

stmt1 = session.query(func.max(Comments.id)).group_by(Comments.distribution_id)
stmt2 = session.query(Comments).filter(Comments.id.in_(stmt1)).subquery()

query = session.query(Distributions).join((stmt2,
                                          Distributions.id ==
print query.all()
