Whichever comes first is of consecrated usage, "whichever comes last" is grammatically correct, however is not commonly used.
In fact, there are a difference in what is "right" or "is not wrong" and what is broadly used. That happens in English, Portuguese, whatever you have.
When you hear someone speaking or writting in English you can locate them by your register (children for example,have some words that is proper to them, adults using would sounds childish using it). A black neighboorhood dweller have a lingo of his own, and if you being a "stranger" for example are trying parrot him, he can take offense, thinking you are being ironic and so on, albeit you are using the very same words he just used.
So, usage is the name of the game, a thing that comes with experience or teaching.
Lots of luck, and I hope I have make myself clear.
