Batman had a black symbol in some of his depictions in the 90's as well (although the movies probably influenced things a lot there).
I actually always preferred this costume to the original TAS costume when they started the new series in the late 90's.
I realize the black bat showed up here and there during the 80s and 90s, but the yellow oval was easily the predominant logo, showing up in monthly comics set in the present time.

I agree. The yellow oval is ideal for the all black suit.
