Pretentious is basically being used as another word for good with maybe a touch of selfishness or quirkyness because of their work outside of a major publisher.
Thinking is overrated. Like Pants.

Actually, Moore is pretty honest about his work. Compare his thoughts on his work to that of many comic fans. Whereas fans tried to classify Lost Girls as "Erotic Fiction" to make it sound more dignified, Moore blatantly called it pornography. Whereas some comic book fans use the term "graphic novel" to make comic books sound more dignified, Moore sticks to calling them comics. And even though many Batman fans praise The Killing Joke as the best or one of the best Batman stories, Moore says it doesn't really have depth, and that there are parts of the story he regrets writing; namely, the crippling assault on Barbara Gordon. People simply confuse the fact that because the man cares about the legacy of his work and thus objects to any unwanted tacked on prequels or adaptations of it that this somehow means he has some unnecessarily deep perceptions about his creations, but caring about your work is only evidence that what he does in life means something to him. As would anyone who cares about what they do in life.

I wouldn't say Gaiman is pretentious.

"Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed."

Gaiman doesn't do that, at least not that I've seen.

(And yeah, Moore doesn't really do that very much.)
