He was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and became widely known for his concrete poetry in the 1960s. Nichol was the the writer and artist of the alternative comic book 'Scraptures', that started as a supplement to the experimental magazine Gronk in 1967. Nichol continuously experimented with various forms of graphic narrative. 'Scraptures' can be considered Canada's first new-wave or small-press comics fanzine. In 1970, he came up with 'Grease Ball Comics'.
